light in the old retired math teachers lonely life, still missing his wife.
The girl turns out to be a real strange person, and the math teacher (played by Brisseau himself), finds out that
she is a worthy soul to try out his own philosophic ideas on. The girl is able to cope with his intellect in a way
that makes him more and more attracted to her company. In a way the old widower (Brisseau) starts getting ideas of
his wife coming back through this young girl. And start thinking of his own death, and the possibilities to return
to life in the same apartment, being compatible with the girl when it comes to age. His head start spinning, and
he plans to write a testament that will make it possible for the young girl to live in his apartment after his death. You better be ready for some scary scenes, and some brief nudity as well. But it`s the conversations between the
old man and the young girl that realy carries this unique film.
Every ponderous, self indulgent, has-no-real-point French film I adore. I heartily defend them all.
I hated this. The main male character, giving the benefit of the doubt, for the first half of the film felt uncertain. I could not work out if he was meant to come across as an aloof, anachronistic figure, ill at ease with the modern world, or whether the acting was just wooden and unconvincing. I was too kind. Wooden would have been a compliment. The whole thing was poorly executed and haltingly delivered. I have seen school productions delivered with more finesse.
Love French cinema with every atom of your being, but don't give this space in your head.
It is a study of human dreams, wishes, desires, fantasies... illusions.
Another reviewer complained that the cover art is misleading, and I cannot argue with that sentiment. The cover photo is taken from a short sequence of "visions". The film runs 1 hour, 31 minutes, the "vision" sequence which includes the cover photo lasts perhaps 45 seconds. On the other hand, film makers frequently use "striking images" from their film, as cover artwork. The example I have in mind is "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and the iconic image of Indy running from the huge stone ball.
That said, I do understand that the difference here is that this particular cover implies that the film involves a lot of nudity. Not so. Having looked at the cover, you have essentially seen the extent of the nudity in the film.
The story is quite gentle; about an older man who takes pity on a girl who has been beaten up and lets her stay with him. There are a few surprising moments, spooky moments... but that's enough, don't want to spoil it for you. (By the way, it's a French film)

This is quite a good picture, though if you are looking for the hot action on the cover it is just a painting that appears briefly in the film. Read morePublished 8 months ago by CW
