In her meek regard and sacred solitude, I found the traces of the first girl I ever fell in love at first grade. Her name was Lara (a blonde) and she too had the same polite and shy uncertainty which is now understood as the epitome of innonce to me, something I fall by involuntarily. Isabelle Huppert transcends acting. Claude Goretta is Vermeer.
You may find multi-dimensional analysis in the movie. Synthesis of Camus's L'etranger, composite thinking of a young woman, sexist analysis 70's socio-economic France and the revolutionary view of individualistic behaviours.
A pointedly banal love story with stale politics, where the characters are constantly getting naked, just never when anyone is around to see them.
As in Carol, I couldn't stop assuming the main character was an alien or a serial-killer.
Film is showing many stages in love affair. It is not only economic cast make lovers put apart, there are many cast systems in life, sometimes you feel, long after the start, that you were not in the same genre. Film also has a reading perspective of relationship of narcissist and empath relationship too. I have to say that she had played amazingly too, pure, real, touching. Remind me my past! Past!
