Brilliant, As Always
31 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie in original, unsubtitled French, and since I am a bit lackluster in this department I must admit that I might have well missed some of the finer points of the movie's dialogue. That said, it struck me as a typical Brilliant movie ... lots of top - heavy dialogue to the tune that a woman's feelings are ever so mysterious, which serve as an excuse for the (as always, stunningly beautiful) lead actress to get her kit off and prance around half - naked a lot. Calling it pretentious soft porn is probably a bit unfair, but not far off the point -- it seems to me that Cathérine Breillat's ambition far outweighs her ability as a movie maker.
