Was this one really such a mess?
4 May 2005 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

I'm tired of reading everywhere that this movie is the worst one ever made, the most unflattering showcase for Seberg, the most perverse story ever told, etc. etc. I think most commentaries grow from its original release (back in 68), when such a subject was almost a taboo on screen, or either from American puritans who couldn't accept Seberg as other thing than a WASP beauty who just smiles and tries to look like a Hitchcockian lookalike blonde. Seeing it nowadays, one might wonder how much of this story was actually based on Seberg and Gary real life, but it doesn't matter anymore. I don't think this picture is neither a masterpiece, neither the terrible mess many people say it was. The atmosphere is incredibly surreal and poetical, the subject treatment never fails into vulgarity, and moreover, Jean Seberg really shines in a very difficult part. She never overacts and gives a performance with such a palette of emotions that one really cares about Adriana, never knowing exactly how is she going to react. On one hand, you tend to condemn her for her behavior, on the other you find her a better human being than all male characters she encounters in her life... You mustn't watch this as an action potboiler but as an European film trying to depict a peculiar woman trapped in a man's world.
