Satan calls the tune
26 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

That's what the title means;but don't let it fool you.There's nothing satanic here ,simply we are treated ,so to speak ,to the delights of the sub-Nouvelle Vague.

One of the great historians of the FRench Cinema,Jacques Lourcelles,wrote that the old cinema of the fifties needed a cure;but he quickly added that the cure was worse than the disease.

It's really the N.W. in all its horror:a vague detective novel plot (when I read the name of Roger Vadim as the screenwriter in the credits ,I knew it was all up!) and interminable conversations between young people (youth cult was a permanent feature of the N.W.)who 've got nothing to do but contemplate their navel and talk about their inflated egos in desirable mansions on the Côte D'Azur.Jacques Perrin and Catherine Deneuve teamed up for the first time .I'm almost sure it's not a film they are proud of (were it only for the ridiculous ending):they were to make two more movies together :" Les Demoiselles De Rochefort" and mainly the wonderful "Peau D'Ane" ,both by Jacques Demy,one of the worthwhile N.W. directors.
