  1. Matt Reddick's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

    Once it occurred to me that Duris looked like Charlotte Gainsbourg, I couldn't get it out of my head.

  2. Mariana Vilela's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

    The film shows a particularly interesting view on the complexity of human mind. It's not the first film to rise the issue of transsexualism nevertheless it brings a catchy story plot along with a remarkable interpretation by Duris, who never seems to disappoint. Once again Ozon proves to be a skillful director bringing a sense of thrill and suspense to the narratives, common in his films such as "Swimming Poll".

  3. smndvdcl's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

    I understand Ozon's agenda, it's a good one - subverting notions of masculinity and femininity, challenging transphobia and playing with the audience's expectations. Despite being commendable, it is just a little bit too knowing.

  4. ig_____or's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

    "The New Girlfirend" finds a strikingly good balance between witty comedy and the emotional drama of overcoming someone's death while dealing with gender identity issues. Claire's conventional life is shaken by Virginia's desire to express herself by crossdressing and discovering the queer community. The two leading characters are rich and complex, making the film a journey to better understand both of them.

  5. José Neves's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

    Since his film made from a Fassbinder script that Ozon, the overvalued Ozon, didn' look for a wicked fairy tale and here he found a potential possibility, largely wasted by his usual inability to release a film from a good formal behavior, descriptive and illustrative, clearly demonstrated by the horrendous ending. But in the transvestite show, although attributed to an "other", Dorothy in Oz was close by.

  6. henr.que's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

    the dialogues on this one were painful to watch

  7. Matthew Martens's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

    Rendell renders fraught, hair-raising scenarios out of of the interplay of knotty, needy psyches. Ozon, in this case at least, serves up slick, less-than-skin-deep bromides, pretty enough to sit through but too thin to sustain much thinking about. Tsk tsk and even harumph.

  8. cinegeek.de's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

    Mit Elementen der romantischen Komödie, des Melodrams und auch des Thrillers ist Francois Ozons neuer Film so etwas wie ein Drahtseilakt des Kinos geworden! Der kleinste Schritt daneben, könnte das ganze Kunstgebilde zerstören! Was in weniger fähigenden Händen zum totalen Albtraum missraten würde, vollbringt Ozon mit seiner berühmten Leichtigkeit... mehr auf cinegeek.de

  9. Mario Tomchev's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

    death and sex with a smile and a singing performance to make your fantasies come true; lighter and less theatrical than Almodovar, but not that cool like Dolan

  10. Matt Richards's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

    Pure melodrama melded with hyper-exaggerated plotting. The New Girlfriend comes off like a cheap, classless Almodovar but remains perplexingly engrossing. It's a bold, and often ridiculous cross-dressing fantasy. 3 stars

  11. Pymo's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

    Crossing the line wearing glitters.

  12. Carl Penguin's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

    da te n plm =)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

  13. spiderliliez's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

    This was a mix of queerness, comedy and drama. Better than I expected. The joy of watching French cinema is that you can see their artistic freedom in expressing the human condition. Films are made for the joy of making it, and what a pleasure it is to see things unfold without restrictions. Fascinating characters, and an odd-romantically quirky story.

  14. Rocketeam's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

    This film has every element of an Almodovar film, except for Almodovar.

  15. doolhof102x81's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

    >When her best friend Lea dies, Claire falls into a deep depression. who the fuck is Lea?

  16. Ebru Yörükoğlu's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

  17. Scotch's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

    The drag queen scene and hospital bed finale were incredible. I don't think this is the case, but I worry that the film may have accidentally reproduced Claire's problematic view of Virginia: seeing a transwoman as a metaphor and not a real person.

  18. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

    Mr. Ozon, who proves to be a legitimate filmmaker, grabs some moods from Almodóvar, yet giving priority to a seductive moderation over exuberance, and also from Xavier Dolan, with the particularity of being slightly more humorous and less staged. (3.5 stars)

  19. Samuel Donath's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

    3.5 Not Ozon's best, but well worth watching. An interesting tale of expectation, desire, obligation, and longing. Sex vs. Gender vs. Culture vs. Desire vs. Longing. A very interesting film.

  20. Elena Lazic's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

  21. Cinema Omnivore's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

    7/10, my review: http://wp.me/p1eXom-1XD

  22. ramosbarajas's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

    In each of his films, Ozon creates often-stylized worlds where his logic reigns, and require a leap of faith from audiences to fully enjoy the film. This film is no different featuring big, epic moments in a rather intimate drama. The ending takes his logic to further lengths, in a deus ex machina, which might prove too much at times.

  23. Héctor Olguín's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

    Comienza algo floja, pero va mejorando conforme avanza. El uso de la música me parece excesivo.

  24. Sophie Wilson Wardman's rating of the film The New Girlfriend

    interesting themes of grief, sexual identity, friendship and nostalgia but something just didn't come together properly for me with the new girlfriend and i find myself a much bigger fan of some of orzon's other works.
