  1. skrt's rating of the film Muriel, or The Time of Return

    Resnais è sempre un regista tortuoso, la sovrabbondanza di parole che pervade i suoi film li rende già misteriosi, un continuo flusso che desta l'attenzione su una storia che poi realtà non esiste, come l'incontro tanto inseguito a Marinbad, o la Muriel del titolo che se è esistita adesso non lo è più. Sotto questo strato di narrazione sempre indirizzato al passato, qualsiasi prospettiva che non sia...

  3. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film Muriel, or The Time of Return

    Sur un thème proche, voire identique, nos préférences vont à "La jetée" de Chris Marker... www.cinefiches.com

  6. grotescsetorg's rating of the film Muriel, or The Time of Return

  7. Aardsy's rating of the film Muriel, or The Time of Return

    Perplexing and frustrating.

  8. Marc Saffar's rating of the film Muriel, or The Time of Return

    Un film passionnant d'Alain Resnais. Une construction savante qui se complexifie au fur et à mesure. Qui a dit que les français ne faisaient pas de films à chaud sur leur actualité politisue dramatique (guerre d'Algérie ici). Resnais, Demy, Rozier l'ont fait mais à leur manière.

  9. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film Muriel, or The Time of Return

    SEYRIG et le pédant Trucmuche, son beau-fils Machin et l'autre Machinette, tout 1 petit monde aussi poussiéreux que sa maison magasin d'antiquités. OK il y a 15 % d'intensité dramatique de RENAIS l'auteur. Mais dans l'ensemble, quel ennui.=== SEYRIG & her pedantic ex-flame, her stepson & the other girl, a little world as dusty as her antique shop house. OK there is 15% of dramatic intensity. But overall, what a drag.

  10. Christophe's rating of the film Muriel, or The Time of Return

    Resnais est un des rares réalisateurs à se préoccuper des vivants parcourus par l'Histoire ici le montage et les dialogues décousus rendent peu clair la douleur qu'inspire Muriel ou les parcours des personnages dans la fuite qu'ils vivent chacun

  11. Xavier's rating of the film Muriel, or The Time of Return

    Not my favorite Alain Resnais, thought the post war shots of reconstructed Boulogne sur mer are worth it.

  12. Funda Can Çuvalcı's rating of the film Muriel, or The Time of Return

    Haunting and complex. This film seems like one of the types films which would unfold different layers of meaning and feeling in each viewing. It is another work of Resnais on the effect of catastrophic events like war on individuals.

  13. Joseph Davila's rating of the film Muriel, or The Time of Return

    Even without doing any research on this film, you can tell it wouldn've devided critics upon release, but one thing everyone should've agreed upon was on how riveting it was to see a master of his medium at work. Definately going to give it a second viewing to fully appreciate it.

  14. captainfez's rating of the film Muriel, or The Time of Return

    As fractured and mystifying as memory and shame themselves.

  15. Ma-rewind's rating of the film Muriel, or The Time of Return

    C'est très rare que je capitule avant la fin d'un film, et pourtant....

  16. songoflos's rating of the film Muriel, or The Time of Return

    A good reflection about what is unspeakable and indescribable. On me dit qu'elle s'appelle Muriel. Je ne sais pas pourquoi, mais ça ne devait pas être son vrai nom.

  17. Ludovic72's rating of the film Muriel, or The Time of Return

    La fragmentation s'impose à tous les niveaux : dans les dialogues, dans les souvenirs des personnages, dans le montage... Ce procédé reflète - dans une "union du fond et de la forme" - des fractures psychologiques qui ne prennent sens qu'assez tardivement. Bien sûr, Resnais est habile dans son formalisme inconfortable. Il aurait tout de même gagné à se montrer plus concis et moins systématique... (3,5 / 5)

  18. Philippe Dumez's rating of the film Muriel, or The Time of Return

    A recommander aux fans de Laurence Badie. A déconseiller aux autres.

  19. cabecassis's rating of the film Muriel, or The Time of Return

    audacieux et beau. il ressuscite une époque mal vécue des français. bouleversante Delphine Seyrig. 1ere ébauche du chanté-parlé... tout Resnais est là Magnifique

  20. Photosynthesis's rating of the film Muriel, or The Time of Return

    La mejor escena del flim es cuando Ernest canta Dèjá no encontré la letra en francés pero en inglés dice: Not only autos go a hundred How annoying Time too rushes on How insane Take it easy, Mr. Time Slow down on the curve Yesterday a kid, today white hair Already (...)

  21. Sin título.'s rating of the film Muriel, or The Time of Return

    Las vicisitudes surgidas durante la cavilación considerada para la satisfacción del deseo personal; una almazuela cuya materia prima es la cualidad fragmentada del recuerdo que no podemos dejar en paz. La obsesión y su relación simbiótica con el autoengaño/autosabotaje para obnubilar los estados más altos de la experiencia humana.

  22. Graf von Zahl's rating of the film Muriel, or The Time of Return

    Perhaps there is something in it (anxiety?), but not for me. Life is too short to spend two hours watching movies like this one.

  23. Ninjin's rating of the film Muriel, or The Time of Return

    it takes place in a port city in northern france, similar to the movie i watched previously "not reconciled" (the subject matter being past/present, war) the characters are deeply flawed (that doesn't evoke pity or sympathy or anything) and the progression of events seem only inevitable.

  24. correy baldwin's rating of the film Muriel, or The Time of Return

    Delightful editing. An intriguing and complex web of lives and lies that had me lost at times, though I never lost interest.
