1st watched 11/17/2001 - 4 out of 10(Dir-Alain Jessua ): This is a plodding French film which seems to be about self-discovery but is more about self-indulgence and ruining relationships with others by not acknowledging anyone to be of any importance except yourself. In some ways it appears like a descent into madness, but the main character chose this madness(it least it appears this way). I'm not sure I've seen more of a navel-gazing movie then this and this seems to be a norm of French films in this era. I'm sorry but as a movie-going expreience this is bothersome and gives no answers. I hope the film-maker got some psychiatric treatment(as it seems the character did near the end) after making this movie and found something more important in his life than himself(which the character did not).
