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
I love how this series plays with the perception of each of these two women's realities, intertwining them to the point where it is difficult to unpick one from the other. This, coupled with the terrific script writing, and cinematography make it a no miss. The attention to detail is superlative and both leading ladies are disciplined, precise and intense. Take the time, you will not regret it.
