Storyline

In a wonderfully sweet yet poignant story, Louise, an old lady, finds herself stranded in a seaside resort after the last train of the holiday season has left the station. But far from panicking, the fearless Louise decides to stay, no matter what awaits her. And the worst does await her: foul weather, heavy rains, high tides. Under such circumstances, will this new Robinson achieve her goal and manage to survive amidst the raging elements? Written by Guy Bellinger

Good intentions, but boring
20 May 2021 | by kerorogioSee all my reviews

An exercise in style, slow and sadly boring. The forgetful Louise would also be tender, but she does nothing but wander around in a vacuum around that seaside village doing very common things, not even she has to survive since she collects everything easily around. To alternate the vision, we are granted a few glimpses of the past, mixing them with dreams and auditory hallucinations with quotations from Carroll. Why all this? Well, in the end you don't understand.

It is not bad movie, but not even poetic, I would say pretentious. Louise with her voice accompanies the viewer more than what happens in "The Red Turtle", but also in this film the authors want us to interpret (and have fun) too much without elements, and visually the production is not surprising, offering bare landscapes and no elements worthy of mention.

At least the art style is pleasant.
