Quotes

Joey: Better venereal disease than a moribund peace and quiet. You know, now I know what makes the world civilised. Vice, disease, mendacity, lechery... shit! The French are a great people, even if they are syphilitic.

Extremely disappointing
23 March 2003 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

I am a fan of Henry Miller and have read many of his books. When I saw a DVD of "Quiet Days in Clichy" on my local video store's "Staff Pick's" shelf, I excitedly plucked it off and read the back.

It sounded great, an artistic rendition of one of Miller's works. I took it home practically rubbing my hands.

As the previous reviewer commented, the acting is abysmal. Painful to watch. What a disappointment.

The photography is good. There are some (filming) tricks employed, but do nothing to salvage this failure.
