Avec ce film, l'acteur-réalisateur Amalric semble être devenu un héritier artistique de John Cassavetes, autant dans son style que dans sa vision des rapports humains et du mélange constant entre la scène et la vie. Son approche fonctionne d'autant mieux qu'il fait jouer de véritables vedettes du "New Burlesque". Revigorant, ce rapprochement franco-américain !
Mathieu Amalric's look at the cabaret world described in Tournée is affectionate and so loving that you finally understand with him that his family is here. The mise-en-scene, awarded in Cannes, is superior. To be short, I loved this film. Masterpiece.
It starts with the coolest opening credit sequence in recent memory. And then we have to catch up with our auteur, mid-strut, the coolest motherfucker on earth. He runs a burlesque show, and he's also the kind of guy who gets knocked down a lot. The beauty is he gets up everytime.
Mathieu Amalric's directorial debut is a surprisingly soulful account of a burlesque troupe's journey across France. Amalric is excellent as the tour's producer, who finds his tattered home life following him on a wild and difficult trip. A bit aimless at times, but there is a surprising amount of pathos to be found as Amalric examines a life ill spent.
Film intelligent, sensible et très personnel où Mathieu AMALRIC traduit son amour des femmes. Des rapports à la femme déjà bien mis en lumière dans la "VENUS A LA FOURRURE" et "L'HISTOIRE DE RICHARD O."
Well this one certainly didn't live up to it's promise. The acting feels forced, limp and lacking direction for the most part. Amalric as the star is the only saving grace. I found it almost impossible to get into for 3/4 of the film as events come and go with about as little interest as the burlesque acts themselves. It gets interesting towards the end but not enough to make it worthwhile for me.
