The Boring and Beautiful
5 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those coming-of-age movies that takes place in the middle of nowhere, portraying an oversexed adolescent girl as only a female European director can. This is fundamentally a boring subject, a magnification of triviality with no suspense or enlightenment. But the movie is skillfully made, avoiding being too quirky or melodramatic. The inner life of the girl is intimately conveyed through a stream-of-consciousness monologue, though the attempt to elevate her and the viewer's consciousness through reflections on the laws of physics is probably only partially successful. Her relationship with her lesbian friend is also rather unconvincing. Visually, the movie is wonderful. The director unleashes her cinematographer husband on the lightly clothed leading lady, and the camera lingers on her from almost every angle. The shots of the scenery aren't bad either. An atmospheric movie that is not for the impatient.
