after "let's dance the Carioca", "let's dance the Bostella", no french cinema isn't dead!
Hi everybody !!! I'm very proud to write about this VERY GOOD FRENCH MOVIE (it's such a pleasure to put this words together!!!!). Do I need to say that I really enjoyed it?... I don't think so, but what I want, And must tell you is why I liked it. To begin with, I must precise, for the foreigners or persons that don't know EDOUARD BAER ( THE director, actor, co-screenwriter). That this film is based on a serie of very short sketches shown in a french talk show: N.P.A. These little jokes were "directed" by Ed Baer and performed by him and his group of looney friends. The film is the story of this group which settles for a month in Provence to prepare a TV show . Of course it deals with humour, and telly, but also with the difficulties of beeing an actor and specialy a comic. *** I don't wan't to spoil your movie so be careful because I will reveal some things.*** the kind of humour that was used in "le centre de visionnage..."isn't really mine, but I laugh. Because of Jo dressed in girl, of Gillou who tries ( how pitiously) to copy M.Miers or Sceamy and of Ed who tells him when he discovers that is friend wants to kill him: "come on GIllou let's kill somebody else." But LA BOSTELLA isn't only a big joke, I found it very tragic and scaring, particularly when Ed and another guy, totally drunk go to "Corinne"'s room to " play the doctor". It's horrible because it can happen. Their frenesy also put some dizziness in this drama of comedy. The last trump of the film is Ed Baer, nevrotic , funny, awful ,lovable and so cute, he is FANTASTIC, to me ( after his great begining in RIEN SUR ROBERT) a star is born. This film is an evidence of his intelligence and talent. I don't think he's going to read it ( I can dream...)but:
THANK YOU M. BAER AND GO ON BECAUSE WE LOVE YOU!!!!!! To see without hesitation.
