Losing Alice is an erotic, psychological, Neo noir thriller inspired by Faust's tale. It tells the the story of Alice, an ambitious 47 year old female film director who becomes obsessed with Sophie, a 24 year old Femme Fatale screenwriter, and eventually surrenders all moral integrity in order to achieve power, success and unlimited relevance. Through the prism of this female Faust, the series explores issues such as guilt; jealousy; fear of aging, rage and the complex relationships women have with each other. But above all, Losing Alice, is a love letter for the-still too rare - female director. Losing Alice is a thrilling cinematic journey that uses flashbacks and flash forwards in a satisfyingly complex narrative that takes the viewer through the conscious and subconscious of its protagonist's mind.Written by
Some reviewers are complaining about the spoken language. And that they have to help themselves by subtitles. Do they realise that not the whole world is speaking English ? I'm Flemish, speaking a kind of Dutch. Since our whole live we always watch a non-Dutch spoken thing by subtitles. Always ... We sometimes do understand, and speak some other languages, where under English. So please, be aware of what you criticise concerning the native language of a film or serial. It's a kind of being respectful. About 'Losing Alice' itself : we just watched the first episode. It's hard stuff. So, we wait with an final opinion until we've seen more.
