  1. merzka's rating of the film La rupture

    Welp. What an apathetic approach to lunacy this was.

  2. P D Dawson's rating of the film La rupture

    A very well constructed plot that evolves beyond the usual thriller and works against what could have been a very predictable ending. Towards the end it also cleverly juxtaposes reality with the hallucinatory effects of being drugged, and brings into questioning who is really mad in the story, by contrasting the good against the bad, the sane against the insane. A film that goes above and beyond its own plot.

  3. Ashley Spendlove's rating of the film La rupture

    The tonal ambiguity reflects the clever way in which Chabrol marries different genres within the predominantly Hitchcockian main narrative. He then does something entirely his own in the final half hour as the entire piece feels as if it is about to spiral into a psychotic and psychedelic nightmare. A gripping thriller and assault on bourgeois corruption: tense, sometimes unpleasant, but not without heart or humour.

  4. 'king Harold's rating of the film La rupture

    I'm not sure what I just watched. The ending with the balloons is very satisfying.

  5. moniquekidman's rating of the film La rupture

    Colorful and disturbing French New Wave psychedelic Gothic. Like in many Gothics from this period, motherhood is used to invalidate and destroy the heroine. Suspense is constantly building in this convoluted tale, with Stephane Audran particularly gripping as the heroine who is stalked like prey but may not be as helpless as she initially seems.

  6. dmol's rating of the film La rupture

    Excellent movie - stylish and slightly mad, while upturning stereotypes like that of the helpful, quasi angelic wife. An ex-stripper and current barmaid, far from being complacent, she is not patiently putting up with manipulation and domestic violence, showing, instead, incredible smartness and strength in spite of it all.

  7. JOHN ATHERTON's rating of the film La rupture

    Good Film but personally find the oft used theme of manipulation and deceipt by the rich very fustrating to watch. Very revelant in a general sense to recent national events.

  9. The Ceramicist's rating of the film La rupture

    Amazing portrayal of the intersection between the establishment and the bereft bohemians - with the right side coming out on top in the end. Of its era - great historical insight into the conservativism of French bourgeoisie culture. At times, it feels Helene's composition, perseverance and self-reflection is compromised by what feels like the director's fetish for creating pity for sexy but flimsy female characters.

  10. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film La rupture

    A film containing some very nasty and disturbing moments, writer-director Claude Chabrol (adapting a novel by Charlotte Armstrong) manages to make everything a bit more palatable with the help of a suave air and Stéphane Audran's appealing lead performance.

  11. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film La rupture

    A film that feels like pure cinema.

  12. Mar ~'s rating of the film La rupture

  13. Tja's rating of the film La rupture

    AKA a Messy Breakup - whatever this is en francaise. Sort of not very humorous black comedy that goes on and on and on ... only the low-key smoldering of Hélène Régnier relieves the ennuie.

  14. McOpinionated's rating of the film La rupture

    OMG that beginning... I am still laughing. If Mubi keeping screening these forgettable films that better off forgotten except as museum pieces for students of film history, then it's not for me. The frying pan scene was funnier than The Young Ones (the TV show folks). Well I admit I skipped some bits but I did make it through to the end. It was awful, apart from Stephane Audran, who had something.

  15. Titchi707's rating of the film La rupture

    Terrific. Tension and intrigue throughout.

  16. Trickstian Shantih's rating of the film La rupture

  17. El Biffo's rating of the film La rupture

    4.4 From the Master of Suspense: Claude Chabrol

  18. FISCHER's rating of the film La rupture

    Un sombre mélodrame qui voit un écrivain drogué, en mal d'inspiration, tenter de tuer sa femme et son fils et le père du "malade" essayer tous les moyens pour récupérer le môme. Une catastrophe ! www.cinefiches.com

  19. Warren Spratley's rating of the film La rupture

    Chabrol's atonal representations of evil & magnanimity here problematize how we as viewers perceive cinematic form. Normal manners of describing theme & style are useless. Benevolence controls the narrative, but wickedness is imbued w/ humor, sex, perverse delight. The dissonances in LA RUPTURE do not fully deconstruct the opposition between turpitude & virtue--good is victorious--but Chabrol's answers are not easy.

  20. Edna Sweetlove's rating of the film La rupture

    Starts promisingly but gets too fanciful and goes on about an hour too long.

  21. Soki's rating of the film La rupture

    Great movie, but I would have loved to see the couple trying to reunite or resolve their issues. Instead they were sepereated all along. I loved the set piece of the hotel and it's guests. Unfortunately, they lost it in the last acts, which were not that balanced as the first half.

  22. AVA's rating of the film La rupture

  23. Graf von Zahl's rating of the film La rupture

    Le charme discret de le absurdité.

  24. Max Seqgar's rating of the film La rupture

    Super trippy. Could this have influenced Raul Ruiz?
