Shadow of a novel
28 February 2012 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

Jean - Pierre Marielle is only actor at perfect place. Otherwise, fragile attempts to suggest the atmosphere of novel. Essence is lost. Game is childish. And the first purpose - invitation to discover the world from Alain-Fournier masterpiece is only smoke. But far from book, it is not a seductive movie. Silhouette of James Dean for Meaulnes is not good option. Mysteries are slices from another stained. France of village is just sketch. And final impression is strange - desire of a director to recreate an universe for new title in his movies list. No doubts, Le grand Meaulnes is not easy prey for adaptations. But this fact may be encouragement. Or curse. So, fragile thing has need gentle hands and refined minds.
