Difficult but incredibly rewarding
4 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In a collection of essays titled "The New Extremism in Cinema: From France to Europe" Grandieux's work is mentioned alongside films by Catherine Breillat, Gaspar Noé and Michael Haneke. Generally speaking I'd say that's a fair starting point if you're wondering what kind of film to expect. Unlike those three directors, Grandieux really diverges from traditional, plot-driven narratives. La Vie Nouvelle is a feature length film with a definite plot but there is only a handful of words spoken. The film communicates with the viewer through colour, texture, unconventional sound design, expressive, wordless, almost awkwardly long scenes.

What never ceases to amaze me while watching a Grandieux film is how intentional every decision seems. While it may be difficult to understand exactly why Grandieux made the decisions that he did it's abundantly clear that there is a masterful hand at work.

I suspect that even the most well-versed cinephile is going to find this a difficult watch but if you're willing to abandon convention and just experience this beautifully shot and incredibly powerful film it's really very rewarding.
