  1. DrFirestone's rating of the film Rosalie

    Excellent cinematography, beautiful minimalistic approach, skillful editing, overall visually this film is quite impressive. The story didn't engage me emotionally, and considering the subject and format, I guess this is a fail; it's probably due to acting, which I found rather disappointing.

  2. Funda Can Çuvalcı's rating of the film Rosalie

    Nice way of storytelling. Different from other Borowczyk shorts in its choosing a serious subject matter.

  3. Nachtreich's rating of the film Rosalie

  4. Drafthing Dan's rating of the film Rosalie

    It's very suggestive and impressive that items of evidence of her crime fades away as her narrative of loneliness is shared, gradually seems to wipe away her guilt.

  5. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film Rosalie

  6. EdieEmm's rating of the film Rosalie

    There's this moment where she's talking about the officer/relative of her employers (who got her pregnant & into this mess) and she looks back & sees her old self, that first love "you don't understand!" I'd do anything for him self, and she's totally overexposed so it's only her floating head... Straightforward only deceptively. Borowczyk was an alien intelligence, expressing his perception via embellishments, 3.5

  7. fearraigh's rating of the film Rosalie

    Borowczyk's style, so unerring in many of his early shorts, seems a bit contrived here. It has the air of a video installation to be consumed in part or whole at a gallery rather than a film itself. It has its moments but didn't really convince me.

  9. tintinmugshot's rating of the film Rosalie

    Poetical and simple, a nice and fluid experiment.

  10. Théophile Robert's rating of the film Rosalie

    It's a good short, but it's just kinda what I expected from a 60s experimental director that's a friend of Chris Marker; too much symbols, too much acting, too much signification. Maybe it's just that today, seeing it is less of an experience than it was in the 60s. Maybe, in the 60s, it was revolutionary, and it helped define a genre - a genre that film student constantly trash with their end-of-school movies.

  11. findfilm's rating of the film Rosalie

    A harrowing short monologue about the sad case of Rosalie who after being repeatedly seduced by an army officer becomes pregnant with twins and tragically kills her new born babies. We only see and hear from Rosalie and there are snatches of shots of the evidence laid out before her. SImple yet powerful, short but concise, and wrapping with an unexpected ending. Totally worth the 15 minute investment.

  12. Chichago_'s rating of the film Rosalie

    The first part of the film is beautiful. I love how they utilize the evidence and the sound of sobbing to tell a story of what happened to Rosalie that leads her to her own trial. It is very simple, yet an effective storytelling at the same time.

  13. Bilouaustria's rating of the film Rosalie

    The opening travelling is close to perfection. You understand everything in an eye blink, you guess what happened from the objects, you hear the sobs in the background. Later on, the editing work as well but i'm not sure about Borowczyk playing once again with objects : stop motion, disappearing... Why ? This has a realistic almost documentary quality and the magic ruins it. Very good adaptation of Maupassant.

  14. FISCHER's rating of the film Rosalie

    Emouvant, triste et d'une grande sobriété... www.cinefiches.com

  15. Ludovic72's rating of the film Rosalie

    Une fois n'est pas coutume, on voit ici le côté sérieux de Walerian Borowczyk. Son adaptation d'un texte de Maupassant joue à la fois sur le minimalisme (un monologue face caméra) et sur un montage habile et soigneusement rythmé (les différentes "pièces à conviction" ponctuent le discours du début à la fin). Le dispositif oblige à regarder, écouter et compatir à cette situation tragique. Du féminisme très efficace !

    SERVITUDE SUCKS: the confessional short film.

  17. zohen lux's rating of the film Rosalie

    i can't believe she killed jedward

  18. BUSTER TIERNEY's rating of the film Rosalie

    Belle performance dans la sobriété, la tension, l'émotion et l'imaginaire nourri par les moments d'animation... pandant que le drame s'épaissit.

  19. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film Rosalie

    DRAMATIC & HEART BREAKING. A la manière de Maupassant, un fait-divers cruel et injuste.

  20. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Rosalie

  21. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Rosalie

    Unsparing. Does not provide you with the luxury of looking away. Remarkable montage.
