Lesbian & Punk
21 March 2012 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I've just seen this movie by Virginie Despentes (famous french writer). It's more mainstream than her previous one (Baise moi !)but nevertheless very provocative. Provocative because it's a lesbian comedy, Virginie Despentes being herself a lesbian she was intented on making it that way. I think it's very important to have such artists who can express themselves in a more and more consensual world and indeed her approach is commendable and necessary. As for the film itself i have some restrictions. First of all i don't really believe in the love story of the two main characters ( B. Dalle & E. Béart) , on the contrary their story is much more convincing when they are young. This is due to the life and energy given by Soko and Clara Ponsot. Two promising , attractive young actresses . The other thing that has bothered me is how punks are shown. For me it's a little flaw, too much cliché. I don't think you have to be always drunk to be a punk. It's strange because Despentes was punk and has known very well this movement in France. To her credit i must say that the soundtrack is excellent with songs from Berurier Noir, La Souris Déglinguée, OTH, Metal Urbain... All in all this is not a very good film, a little flawed but that's not very important here. What counts it's is freedom of speech and that's priceless.
