strange year 1970
26 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Having been watching some rather obscure movies from the late sixties through to the eighties, of late, I have come to the conclusion that around 1970, the French in particular, made some very odd ones. Moon And Midnight was one and this is another. Seemingly low budget yet still able to secure the services of Anna Karina and Jean Rochefort this is described as 'sci-fi tinged'. Maybe, but pretentious would be another apt description. Strangely, having just watched The Lickerish Quartet, this is another film with a found film within that seems to foretell what other participants in the film will partake of. The main problem is that there is no attempt to involve the viewer, other than with repeated imagery, which can end up being more alienating. never mind the appalling soundtrack that crashes all about.

Worth watching only for the lovely Anna Karina and veteran actor, Jean Rochefort in one of his earlier films. I can't imagine either actor got paid for this - strange year 1970 worldwide but in France in particular. We can probably blame the student uprising of a couple of years previous.
