4.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent, Fresh, Observant US Cinema, 21 Dec. 2003
This review is from: Ivansxtc [VHS] [2002] (VHS Tape)
It's not the first time we've seen films foray into the world of the Hollywood agent, however Ivans XTC refrains from satire. This remains a story about redemption, consequence and loneliness. It's cleverly directed, with it's digital quality amd readily moving frame aptly mirroring the hectic existence of the lead character's lifestyle. The acting is charming and wonderfully observed, it's the strong point of this character based film.
It doesn't leave you with anything but a sad, reflective glimpse into the life, and death, of one man who must respresent many in our modern isolated culture. It's a touching gem of modern US cinema.

4.0 out of 5 stars French Cinema fails to disappoint yet again, 4 Dec. 2003
Fundamentally, the story and interest of the entire film rests on Virginie Ledoyen as the central character. Her portrayal of a nieve, yet strong willed, young girl caught up in circumstances beyond her judgement and control is the underlying basis to the entire film.
Both her and the film are a success. Both charming and subtle, she makes the story attractive and accessible. The plot in itself is interesting in it's basic format, and the supporting cast performs adequately enough.
The direction is confident, but never flashy. It's not an intellectual centrepiece, but it's challenging themes of youth, identity, passion and responsibility will certainly give the familiar feelings of mental stimulation that modern french cinema often carries with it.
It's a jem, worth taking a look at for the central performances alone, and the refreshing, if not logical, ending.
