Charlotte Gainsbourg and Anouk Grinberg are excellent as they search for new experiences and explanations for their current circumstances which carry them back and forth between present day France and the war time occupation. They are supported by the outstanding Gerard Depardieu playing a crooked and amoral doctor.
It has to be said I cannot agree with CP write up to this film, primarily, I agree, because I don't understand it. It is a maelstrom of false beginnings and you find yourself back at the start after gleaming information enroute. So much is never satisfactory explained. Having said that I love this type of film. Imagine Salvor Dali on drugs, hold on tight and watch the film. For me,unusually there was no pee breaks so that is a good qualification in itself. Surrealism to blow your brains and enjoyable.
What in the hell was all that about... I can't say we didn't like it, I can't exactly say we did... dont agree with CP review about the aids narrative but not entirely clear where the film went. ... where did the Germans fit in? ...and what about those seagulls..
