2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing `paranormal' story, 16 Nov 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Girl From Nowhere [DVD] (DVD)
Of Brisseau's previous films, I enjoyed `Noce Blanche' and `Choses Secretes', and disliked `The Exterminating Angels'. Unfortunately this film has much more in common with `The Exterminating Angels' than with the other two. It has a strong element of surrealism, and lacks a worthwhile narrative. It is basically a prolonged series of conversations between two people, an elderly widower played by Brisseau himself and an attractive young woman who has paranormal powers and may in fact be a ghost. The film that this most reminded me of is Ken Russell's `Fall of the Louse of Usher': both are low-budget surrealistic films in which an ageing and overweight director, in the twilight of his career, saves money by casting himself as the male lead.
