L'étrange couleur des larmes de ton corps

Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears

Individual sequences are astonishing, but the brief flashes of brilliance don't justify the whole. There's a mystery that never resolves, characters that never develop, set-pieces so mechanical they become interchangeable and as such devoid of peril. Again, the filmmakers reduce the appeal of the genre to a bunch of empty fetishes; the same irritating grab-bag of techniques seen previous in Amer recycled ad nauseam.
