5.0 out of 5 stars A film which repays many viewings, 25 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Look At Me [DVD] (DVD)
A wonderful film in so many ways as indicated by the other reviewers, I think Comme une Image (a title which can be read at so many levels) is deceptively profound in the way that, for me, repeat viewings bring out changing ideas and reactions to the characters and their behaviour. Its a psychological treat! Just one example. One of the main characters, the writer Etienne, is indeed a monster, an ego-maniac of ridiculous proportions. However...he is also very truthful and direct and reacts to the world around him with disarming frankness - what you see is what you get. All the other main characters, for all their more "attractive" features, are all in different ways caught up in the world of (albeit minor) image and deception (self and others). How their various lives intertwine, through many situations, both serious and trivial, is expertly laid out for us by Jaoui in a film that is elegant, funny and profound...and with a superb musical score!
