4.0 out of 5 stars Love's Roller Coaster, 1 Jan 2006
This review is from: Betty Blue (Unrated Directors Cut) [1986] (REGION 1) (NTSC) [DVD] [US Import] (DVD)
"Betty Blue" is never less than captivating from start to finish. The film is a love story about two misfits who become soul mates; Zorg is an unambitious handyman with ambitions to become a writer, while Betty is a beautiful , but mentally disturbed waitress with a violent streak. Their love affair develops as they move from the coast first to Paris and then to a village in the mountains. The acting and characterisation is superb as is the storyline and cinematography . "Betty Blue" captures the essence of the roller coaster ride of deep obsessional love ; the powerful sense of profound vitality and purpose mixed with anxiety and despair at the prospect of it's loss. My only criticism of the film would be that I thought it was a little overlong at three hours, although it was never boring, and the end was a bit harrowing too. "Betty Blue" was groundbreaking in its day with regards to the copious amount of nudity and the ,ammm, very realistic sex scenes displayed in the film. So don't watch it you find that offensive.
