Ce film se veut une réflexion métaphysique sur la vie, l'amour et la mort, un hymne immuable au passionnel. Il est de bon ton de crier au génie créatif, à la perfection cinématographique, mais on peut préférer "Hiroshima mon amour" ou "Providence". Gare aux détracteurs solitaires... www.cinefiches.com
Wow. Unspeakably awful. I am having trouble withstanding this blow. My God. The formal conceit, the film's only novelty, is a bankrupt enterprise. Let's start there. Everything else: O Lord! These people are awful. I do not want to hear basically educated, emphatically regular people whine endlessly about mortality and grief. Sabine Azéma. Her clearly-smitten director was unwilling or unable to direct her. I hate it.
Really impressive use of Hans Werner Henze's brilliant and heavily textured 20th century music through apocalyptic snow interludes (a transition process that is used on a lighter way in Resnais late days with his wife) in a movie about religion and death, the meaning in daily life. Wish there was more movies with such radical music !! We tend to use bad music in the 2000's.
