If his later incursion in British Free Cinema wasn't consequent, this Nouvelle Vague (french and polish) burlesque version is brilliant, with a wild Skolimowski choreographing ideas of musical movements along with an extraordinary score by Krzysztof Komeda and cinematography by Willy Kurant: filmed in Belgium, with Léaud as protagonist, we can only see the mirage of an adventurous Paris of the 60s, masculin-féminin.
ah, what energy, what freedom and chemistry! amazing interplay between komeda's music and skolimowski's images.
it's interesting how the humor in this film gets at some points transformed into total sadness and vice versa.
I tried to watch it for half an hour, after that on fast forward. I didn't find any funny stuff, i found it difficult to watch and the music was really annoying ( I don't like that type of annoying jazz). One point for the cuteness of Jean-Pierre Léaud
It's great that films like this exist although they are a bit painful to watch at times. Films that haven't really a plot but rely on a few ideas and the main actor and are apparently done with a very tight budget. For me it was interesting cause Deep End is one of my all time favourites and I was curious to see if Skolimowski's Genius was apparent a few years earlier. On the evidence of this, it wasn't really.
