This is the second Breillat movie I've seen. And I already agree with the haters. Catherine Breilat is a pretentious hack, and this movie proves it. Watching this film, I kept thinking "Breillat needs to get laid, so that she can stop making these 'MEN ARE EVIL!' films".
My first Breillat experience was Anatomy of Hell, and it was the biggest hogwash ever. It was like the porn version of the Lifetime network. I decided not to let one bad experience ruin it for me, so I watched Fat Girl and Romance, both left me feeling as though I wasted time and money.
The movie has no plot except some woman being upset with her love life. The cover's statement "the sexiest movie ever made" is a flat out lie. There's NOTHING sexy in the movie. The sexiest thing in the movie is the cover art and that's it. The sex scenes are boring too, none of which are erotic.
As for Catherine Breillat. I know her object is to explore Female Sexuality and that's not a bad thing. But the way she does it, it's like a parody of European Art House Cinema. I think she's faking the whole feminist angle so that she can get attention from art house seekers. Dude, do you know what would happen if a guy made a film about women the same way Breillat makes movies about men? He'd be torn to shreds. But with Cathy, it's "intellectual". Yawn. Someone needs to slap Cathy upside the head and tell her that not all men are the evil creatures she makes them out to be. If anyone actually thinks Breillat is intellectual, then they don't know what "intellectual" is. "Something something Vagina, Something something Penis, Something Something Woman, Something something Vagina and Man" is NOT intellectual. It's just "I hate men" droning.
Do not give your money to this pretentious hack or a filmmaker. Even Uwe Boll and Uli Lommel make better movies.
