Storyline

A young film director is turning a movie with his friend Christa (reminds us of the real-life relationship between Garrel and Nico). In the film-within-the-film there are two couples, one real, one imagined , and the film - told through five dreams - is as much the story of a film on-production, as the birth of a child.

black and white urban art house stuff with a detached plot
24 March 2016 | by (midlands of england) – See all my reviews

I watched this on a rainy, grey afternoon which was kind of a perfect backdrop for this fairly dreary movie. Nothing really happens, prolonged and largely meaningless scenes led us nowhere and the convoluted notion of a film within a film was a pretty dull affair all round. The characters all seemed to have undergone a personality bypass and the screenplay never gave them any assistance in recovering from that trauma. I gave it a six rating as the cinematography made the film worth watching. A Parisian setting in grainy black and white that had a feel of the fifties more than the mid eighties meant that I could let that wash over me whilst I was waiting for a plot to reveal itself. Or for a character to do something interesting rather than smoke heavily looking pensive. But what about? Shame really as there was potential for something far better.
