Sad story
11 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

René Feret is largely overlooked in his native France.His "Mystere Alexina" was certainly one of the most original movies of the thirty last years.

"Histoire de Paul" is a sad depressing story.Filmed on a shoestring budget,with no stars (like Bresson,his closest relative)and an austere treatment,Feret tells the story of a depressive young man ,an inmate in a psychiatrist hospital where humanity seems to have disappeared. The loss of a sense of self best describes this work.

Should appeal to people who were moved by Kenneth Loach's "family life" or Georges Franju's "la Tete Contre les Murs" .
