Outstanding French Cinema!,
This review is from: Betty Blue - Director's Cut  [DVD] (DVD)
A true French classic and one of my favourite films of all time. It depicts a story of a woman whose life seems to be tormented by invisible demons, and the man who loves her. She comes into his life like a whirlwind, challenging him to become the writer he's always wanted to be. Everything she does is with such passion and aggression.
But her increasingly aberrant behaviour means that, after attacking his boss and causing such mayhem, they have to up and leave quickly. A pattern that continues as Betty is always unsatisfied, always chasing something.
Things become more desperate as she spirals into a deranged world, so much so that Zorg has to think of how he can finally save the woman he loves from more pain.
There are many amazing stand out scenes in this film. In one, Zorg is standing naked playing with a frankfurter! For lovers of French cinema, I cannot recommend this film enough. But then, if you love French cinema, you will probably already know this as a classic.
