Total boring with a full frontal nude
20 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

Fernando Rey, a great and distinguished actor, starred in several masterpieces by Luis Buñuel, "Viridiana" (1961), "The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie" (1972), "That Obscure Object of Desire" (1977). Together with Catherine Deneuve, he played in another masterpiece signed by the same Luis Buñuel, "Tristana" (1970). Juan Luis Buñuel, son of Luis Buñuel and director of this "La femme aux bottes rouges" (1974), brings together the two actors to manifest his own style, not far from that of his father, as a kind of continuation of his father's talent. But, unfortunately, it is nothing but an attempt, an imprint in the void. The script is weak, disappointing. From here, all the trouble. Despite the good players(we have in the cast also two fine Italian actors, Adalberto Maria Merli and Laura Betti), nothing can save the film from disaster. Even having the song originally from Romania (my home country), L'Alouette (Ciocirlia) performed by Michael Ionesco and His Orchestra Tzigane, he still fails. When I was a teenager, I was lovesick of surrealism, and I still am, but this is just bullshit, nothing more.
