Guillaume's rating of the film Persécution

Love is hard and trying to connect and live with someone is something really intense. The director and his actors brings that complexity to the screen. Set in metro, the streets and featuring "middle class" people, the suffering is everywhere and Chéreau is not affraid of showing real life in the style of Pialat. It's sad to see a good film that could have been a great one because of his lack of mise en scene.
