No, No Nenette
16 October 2005 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

My main if not sole reason for seeing this was the fact that it featured Valeria Bruni Tedeschi in a supporting role. Although as a rule I'm a great admirer of French female directors like Nicole Garcia, Ann Fontaine, Claire Kurys, Tonie Marshall, Danielle Thompson, etc I've found it hard to warm to Claire Denis but that may, of course, be more my fault than hers. I did enjoy Vendredi Soir and J'ai pas sommeil was not as bad as I had feared but she lost me completely with L'Intrus and the subject matter of Beau Travail didn't appeal. There's very little here that we haven't seen before in terms of our old friend the dysfunctional family and it was too easy to nod off especially as Bruni Tedeschi was under used. Having said that I'm sure it will have its admirers.
