A very much kafka-esque & surreal story until the very, very end. A lot of oscilliations between imaginative-puzzling & rational-reasonable events are putting the spectator always on the wrong track. Although only 82 min., in the middle section the story is unnecessarily too long. Maybe a short story would have been more suitable. However, interesting story-line. Wonderful V. Lindon & E. Devos. Solid: 3 stars plus.
A terrific concept with a truly boring and disappointing execution. I was on board until I realized that a) there was no way the film was going to explain what was going on, b) that the action had terminated right when the protagonist left France and c) nothing was happening and there was still a half hour left! I love weird films, I love French films, and I even love films that leave you guessing. Just not this one.
