Not Celine and Julie
2 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I believe at the time Duelle was made it was a flop because it was seen as being a sort of sequel to Celine and Julie go Boating and it isn't. Unfortunately I watched this almost straight after seeing the absolutely wonderful Celine and Julie and consequently it was hard not to make comparisons. The cinematography is similar in both films, but in this it feels less vibrant. There isn't the same wonderful use of ambient noise nor is there the real sense of fun as the was in Celine and Julie. There's obviously a complex narrative going on but I couldn't really follow it.

So without any of that happening one is left with Jacques Rivette's study of mysticism and a few suddenly shocking twists. For me it wasn't enough to stop the film being just boring.
