the nostalgic comedy of the sixties-wonderland
1 October 2003 | by (France) – See all my reviews

*spoiler a bit*

It's the first time that I ever heard of Serge Bozon either have seen his movie. I had no background idea what the film will turn up to. (I simply imagined the Velvet Goldmine or some sort, thinking about music and so on) What I discovered was, well, more than a pleasant experience. It was last night that I saw it and I can't resist the temptation to write something about this film.

First of all I'd like to mention that Mods is not a realistic film. It is filled with images and the 'cliche' of the sixties, and the characters are rather clown-like, mechanical, but sympathetic. It is the sixties we expect to be, not the real sixties. But the details are cut into metaphores such as the campus, the old-fashioned jeans and the weird 'Beatles' haircut, and it REALLY works. The featuring music and the 'dances' remind me somehow those of experimental movie clips, but it's far much better, and furthermore, really 'funny'. (I couldn't find the proper words to describe this film other than funny, but it IS funny.)

In this world of imaginary-sixties-of-students there comes the two strangers, the soldiers, for a 'mission' - to save their brother. As they find out about their brother (who is the small hero of that world) little by little, they also give the audiences the hints about the small world the director created through their 'play'. The sequences are repeated like the symphony with several variation. (and it's real 'traditional' term of comedy, i think)

It's a big circus, well-done comedy and I really fancied almost all the details. So far it was the first time that I really enjoyed watching 'french' comedy (apart from those of 'classic'), and you gotta see it by yourself.(it's only 59 min.)
