Dull, Pretentious, Amateurish
15 January 2004 | by (England) – See all my reviews

An interesting premise, a man cursed with immortality, is here turned into a very dull tale. The immortal man maintains the same dreary expression and monotone voice throughout, and this is an accurate reflection of the film as a whole.

This is one of those movies that requires only a portion of your attention; very little happens, and even that is entirely predictable. If you want to watch, I suggest you have a newspaper handy to help you through.

The whole enterprise has a very French feel. Not a good French movie, but one that concentrates on trivialities and inconsequencialities, devoid of any likeable main characters or plot, and posessed of an entirely negative attitude to life.

There is also a very dated feel. I was astonished to find that it was made in 1995. Even though I recognised one or two members of the cast, I would have guessed rather earlier. In fact, in the absence of that cast recognition I would have placed it in the early 1960's - a very bad C-class 1960's production.

There is really no need to watch this film - just read this summation of the "plot"; All life is fleeting and futile. Everything is the same, repeating endlessly. All is dull and dreary. Those who think otherwise are deluded fools. They can only maintain their illusions because a mortal life is so short that this burning truth can be partially disregarded.

I honestly suggest avoiding this one. Just read the above summary and regain the 90 minutes of your life that would otherwise be lost forever.

2/10
