The only time I ever had to restrain myself to leave the theater
11 July 2012 | by See all my reviews

I write this review so other will not do the same mistake that I did.

I have seen the film when it was in theater because of some good reviews in the press... But I must admit that it is the worst experience I have ever had. Though I tried, I still do not understand what lead some user to do a good comment of this film.

I do not like to do bad reviews, but this film has been such a bad experience that I cannot help to say what I think of it, even ten years after seeing it.

This film represent for me what goes wrong in the French cinema industry and authors: - films that are boring; - scenarios which makes little to no sense at all; - worst, a lack of connection to the way real people behaves (for instance, apparently the abandon of a child is not so hard), thus preventing spectators to project themselves in the movie; - ... And for those who will watch it in French... Always the same problem of actors always mumbling... French is my native language, but still I have sometimes troubles to understand!

As another review states it, the film is pretentious and indulgent... Pretentious because the film is not enjoyable, the acting is poor... And still it is released as if it was a new milestone of the Cinema. The film also includes scenes of homosexual men making out - for those interested! I didn't understood the point of the scenes, apart perhaps to lure homosexual into seeing it (as many other movies do with nudity, which isn't an excuse to a scenario poorly written, I'm afraid) or pretend to be "à la mode"... (I'd go for the second explanation).

In the end, I said that I had to resist to leaving the theater. This is not only because the film is so boring: it is because I felt obfuscated that I paid to see such a poorly made film with a boring scenario which make so little sense, with characters I cannot feel related to because they all seems to be in the deepest depression... And finally because I feel ashame that this is the typical French cinema drama's worst: a genre where it seems to be OK to do a bad film as long as you say it's art!
