Overlong
29 August 2004 | by (Ile-de-France / Paris Region, France) – See all my reviews

Although this film isn't long at 1h 27m, when you watch it, it certainly seems longer. Probably because the number of characters is reduced ( only 2 ) plus the fact that the set is pretty limited. In fact it's more of a filmed play than a film. The action ( if we can call it that ) taked place in Paris, France because we see the ET thru the window !! The actors who are little known as of today are likeable enough and the premise for the plot not uninteresting. The thing is that the script is very limited and the dialogues become more and more repetitive as the film advances. With limited plot and limited sets, the dialogues have to be pretty damn good to carry the film till the end. In this case they are really average, hence the impression of repetition. I may give the film a second viewing when it is issued on dvd but my overall impression is one of "thirst not being quenched" and expecting a more interesting plot with more twists and surprises. As it is, there are little of those and the film wends its way slowly and surely towards its inescapable end. I wouldn't bet on this film having any chance of success outside France and even within that country I think it's success will be pretty limited, a far cry from "Le Père Noël est Une Ordure" or "Le Diner de Cons". Audiences today expect a film to move far faster than this to keep up their attention and enthousiasm. Unfortunately with "Je me sens pas belle" I personally feel that this is far from being the case despite the actors themselves being physically pleasant to watch.
