Great film by Jean Aurel, full of poetry.
6 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is my first comment, and I am writing this review out of frustration reading such low ratings for this film by Jean Aurel. I have seen this film many times..., BB is so beautiful, but this is only the premium, the surplus value. Now, why this a good film ?... because the subject is well treated, with finesse. The main character, the writer, with his voice sometimes in off, sometimes dictating to his secretary (BB) explains his visions on women, relationships, broken relationships, freedom, writing, confusion, free love, man-woman behavior, marriage, man poetry with love and feelings, etc. Jean Aurel knows how to go deeper but stay human, fragile; and allow us to enjoy very good scenes, (it comes to mind, his girlfriend posing for pictures with this perfect wild jazz drumming. Superbe). No dull performances or out context. By the way, "Il a y deux femmes en vous"... It works all the time. I wonder if this film inspired L'homme qui aimait les femmes" by F. Truffaut. It seems to me Truffaut is paying tribute to Jean Aurel's great film. 8/10
