How The Two Meet,
This review is from: Elles [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Juliette Binoche (The English Patient  [Blu-ray], Three Colours Blue [DVD] ) stars as Anne, an investigative journalist on the hunt for finding the truth about things. In her latest exposé she is looking into prostitution within students, and finds two girls quite happy to tell her what goes on (Charlotte (Anaïs Demoustier) and Alicja (Joanna Kulig)). She finds out shocking things she wouldn't expect in her life - and how the girls manage it, and still keep going to university at the same time. Anne discovers her life isn't as straight forward either, and she's lacking something.
It's quite an interesting film, though it is quite difficult to get into, as it's slow, and it's development does take a long time. Both Anaïs and Joanna are both good actors, and of course Juliette gives us a stirling performance. Some people may ask though, what separates this from porn and just a film though, and yes, that is a good question, as there are some scenes you'd normally get on a porn movie, though I don't think you could really get excited over this movie as it's not done glamorously and even at times it's quite cringe worthy.
The sound on this was excellent, with a good mix and sounds coming from all angles, the dialogue is well mixed too. The picture is good, clear and well coloured.
Altogether this is an interesting film, but I don't think I'd actually buy it as it has no come back features to it, once you've seen it, you've seen it. There's no fascinating moment where you think I really need to see that again, simply because it's slow and the progression can be minimal.
Watch out for François Civil, I can see him being a star in a few years time.
