  2. Adam GR's rating of the film Nénette and Boni

    Oh so doughy. Nénette and Boniface are such angsty rebels. That bunny. A wood-oven pizza truck? Suicide by hot mustard bath? A story told through bodies. Denis' gaze is one of (almost overreaching) ardor and creates the characters as much as the actors. Terrific, hormonal work by Grégoire Colin. I wasn't expecting the violence. How deep are we supposed to read into the father's crimes? Valéria! Chantilly confections!

  3. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film Nénette and Boni

    Unfocused (I don't really see what the boulangerie has to do with anything) and the solution to the siblings' conflict is kind of awkward, but it's pleasant to watch.

    I think I preferred ‘US Go Home’ which this basically seems built off of – it managed to strike a deeper chord with its characters than this did. Possibly Denis’ most obfuscating film in terms of style and narrative, what still resonates the most are the strange ways characters are developed and their idiosyncrasies. If anything this relied a little too heavily on that technique

    Una película que en principio presume referentes eróticos que se van quedando en el camino gracias al otro lado de la historia, uno que deja de ser fantasioso. "Nenette and Boni" es un cuadro realista de una familia escindida. Hay un deseo por la redención que se perfila con hostilidad. Es como si el protagonista no encontrara la forma adecuada de poder fraternizar o mostrar su benevolencia.

  12. Stevie's rating of the film Nénette and Boni

    A beautifully sensuous film from an auteur who creates art using a continuous flow of images and feelings without adhering to a conventional story line. Agnes Godard is a wonderful cinematographer.

    "The sensual and sensitive beauty of the film springs precisely from Nénette and Boni’s unbridled, rash decisions, desires, and quirks as individuals and as siblings." - Rowena Santos Aquino, NextProjection.com

  14. amhume's rating of the film Nénette and Boni

    Claustrophobic shots of domestic, private spaces are super interesting, gorgeous. But there's no real story.

  16. Weston Campbell's rating of the film Nénette and Boni

    Engrossing look at the remnants of a destroyed family.

  17. El Biffo's rating of the film Nénette and Boni

    Perhaps the most accessible of Claire Denis' films, this one has a linear story, and dialogue, perhaps even more than necessary. Valeria Bruni Tedeschi and Vincent Gallo as the baker and his wife are charming, but almost seem out of place in this film. Very good, but I prefer the more austere style of Beau Travail and White Material. 4 stars, nonetheless. Claire Denis is an important film maker.

  18. Cinerio's rating of the film Nénette and Boni

    can one subsist on food alone or does one really need some sort of companionship? this one seems to be conveying to me that they're inseparable.

  22. francisca bacon's rating of the film Nénette and Boni

    the famous plaisanteur nietzsche once said that to cure a woman, to redeem her, a man has to give her a child. this film seems to be made from the perspective of a female nietzsche , who boldly states: the same goes for a man, it is he who is saved and comforted by a child. and if i am to consider the unpleasant appendix that continues the assumption above, "woman needs children, a man is for her always only a means"

  23. Dale Wittig's rating of the film Nénette and Boni

    Alice Houri and Grégoire Colin are the estranged sister and brother of the title who are reunited after the death of their mother. Valeria Bruni Tedesch plays the baker's wife, who figures as the center of Boni's sexual fantasies, and Vincent Gallo is charming as her American husband, the baker. There is a strangely tactile and olfactive quality to this sensual film that slips between fantasy, dream and waking life.

    there are very few things in this world prettier than swimming curly hair underwater.
