Antes y después de la revolución. Lo que era furia será luego apatía y de la esperanza por un cambio quedará tan solo la angustia de la conformidad. El pasaje entre esos sentimientos hace que ésta película sea la más amarga entre la larga lista de desolaciones firmadas por Garrel. Y el que captura esos paredones de pérdidas no es otro que William Lubtchansky, demostrando aquí su pleno poder como artesano de la luz.
This movie won't leave me alone - at all. It seems to be constantly invading my mind, and my writing. It is, quite simply, perfection, and I cannot wait to see it again. If I see another Garrel film that beats this one, in terms of closeness to me (because his other films, too, have been great so far), then I will be shocked, and yet incredibly humbled.
odd. a contrived mixup of later Bresson & Eustache, "Boy Meets Girl", and "Beware of a Holy Whore" that masquerades as French New Wave some 40 years later. Truffaut and Bertolucci references were painfully ingratiating. i felt like i could follow this for a while longer with its good moments but the changes in style and slack narrative seemed affected.
This absolute masterpiece depicts with familiarity the May '68 spirit, shown through the relationship between two young lovers. There is nothing to say about the perfect mise en scène, the mesmerizing performances by Garrel and Hesme, the hypnotic portrait of a measureless time... Only one of those dark close-ups makes the film worth watching.
