Homme au bain

Christophe Honoré France, 2010

moniquekidman's rating of the film Man at Bath

The ugly, jittery New York sequences actually possess a certain visual life and verve, despite being dull in content. And they are better than the rest of the film, which drably and meaninglessly attempts to provide some sympathy for and understanding of Francois Sagat's horrible rapist character. Sagat's dance-cleaning near the beginning is charming though.
