Huit-clos about attractions, passion and human contradictions around an impetuous young deliquent. Well played and interesting.
28 May 2001 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

The plot: Alex is young, Alex is impetuous. Alex is a drug dealer, and is sometimes afraid of women. Fred's boyfriend (I can't find his name. note: Fred is a girl) owes Alex some money. The film starts with Alex threatening him violently to get his money back. Fred is graceful, mentally strong, and complicated. Fred is disgusted by Alex. But in the same time, she's attracted by his force and the danger he represents. She will approach him, seduce him. In order to observe him from a distance, she will involve a third person: Sylvia, met in a nightclub, that she suggests to Alex, and that looks sad. The night will then continue, in a hotel suite payed by Alex, like he always do with girls he meets, between the 3 people. But this time, things will be a little less simple than usual: talk, confrontate & seduce, hesitate, cry & laugh.

The pros: excellent comedians, psychologically plausible and brilliant (isn't Rivette exploring the human nature, and especially its passions ?). The cons: unsufficient 'mise en scene'. This is filmed like a reality show (with a numeric cam), but the plot is actually too complex to be reality. A little bit too verbous and static too (it would make a great theater play).
