A solid movie, but nothing authentic about it
9 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

After watching A bout de soufflé (Godart), one will notice that Young and Healthy like a Rose is another rip-off of the French Nouvelle Vague by Yugoslav directors.

At the time this made perfect sense, with all the censorship and control over culture.

But to call this move an authentic piece of work ahead of its time would be a mistake.

The movie rips-off the original after 11 years.

Having said this, in local context the movie has been very important in paving the way for a Yugoslav / Serbian new wave in film.
