An overrated work.
25 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

Like most of the nouvelle vague works ,"Adieu Philippine" seems dated now.Some people will praise it to the skies ,other will find it a bit boring and tedious.

The first part is the best:the depiction in a quasi documentary way of the TV studios,the meal at the hero's home where his parents and grand-parents are discussing barroom politics ,the stupid commercials -the movie was prophetic for that matter-.The spontaneity of the actors is convincing.

There's a sword of Damocles hanging over the hero's head:in two months ,he will be drafted and will have to fight in Algeria ,French dirty war.That's perhaps the most amazing thing:nobody,neither the future soldier nor his girlfriends or relatives seem to take it seriously.He will go,period.That makes the movie unintentionally a bit reactionary,particularly if we compare it to old wave Autant-Lara's contemporary "tu ne tueras point".

The second part is nouvelle vague flesh on the bone:a very loose plot, and a very loooong ending.Sincerely,I doubt the 2002 audience can relate to such amateurish directing.Some will say the hero wants to make the best of what is left to him :but nothing vibrates and everything seems hollow.

The movie was a flop and did get critical acclaim afterwards.So,my opinion is probably not very orthodox.
