LA MARGE by Borowski is a dreamy and trippy film it is anchored in the reality, but it shows a hidden, subconscious reality. Poetic, dramatic and cool, it features also a good, evocative soundtrack of the 70s.
Sigimond (Joe Dallesandro) is married to Sergine. Sergine is pretty and she lives with Sigimond a fulfilled life, sexually and otherwise. One day Sigimond (Joe Dallesandro) goes to Paris, and by night, in a brothel, he knows a prostitute, Diana (Sylvia Kristel). She will personify the mystery of pleasure beautiful, delicate and elusive. Diana (Sylvia Krystel) will be his obsession.
LA MARGE has mobile and sensitive cameras, a good portrayal of the milieu (environment and characters) and a wonderful soundtrack (for example, the almost forgotten 10cc among others)
LA MARGE is a very personal film if you like cinema as an audiovisual art, you should try this film, but those that want a film with a very straightforward story should look elsewhere.
