14 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

Alexandre Astruc ditches his former "camera pen " style which spawned memorable efforts such as D'Aurevilly's "Le Rideau Cramoisi" and Maupassant's "Une Vie" . "Education Sentimentale" finds the director succumbing to the Nouvelle Vague vices :hollow characters, loose screenplay ,"deep" "serious" "meaningful " conversations,self-centred persons who do not even realize there is a world outside.

Freely adapted from Gustave Flaubert ,Astruc -who brilliantly succeeded in adapting Maupassant - made the same mistake as Vadim filming "Les Liaisons Dangereuses" :transposing a work from another century to his era .In the sixties ,a story which was absorbing one hundred years before may become banal ,as common as any (platonic or not)adulterous relations .

Well acted by Brialy,Auclair and Nat,but it is not enough ;it's boring.
