Should have used a sweeter cat
29 October 2017 | by qeterSee all my reviews

Seen at the Viennale 2017: Laetitia Dosch rescued this movie from absolute impassibility. To follow female young women with close-up camera through their daily life is a new trend. I guess, it has something to do with new camera techniques. Because faces of people can tell stories of their own, somebody can make easily a "character study" instead of a well told story with interesting characters. I appreciate that such movies are a psychological help for up-growing young girls (I hope they find their way to pictures like this). But for an adult they are quite boring.
