Cheap and not particularly cheerful - Brief Crossing review by GA

Spoiler Alert
12/09/2014

Typically Catherine Breillat film chock full of cynical musing abut the nature of men (and, sometimes, women), the debasing quality of relationships, and some sex. The very low budget and cast of essentially just the two main characters could make for something intimate and real, but the overly long soliloquies make it resemble anything but normal interaction between two people.

Sometimes it's best to save the essays for a book. Watch Breillat's sumptuous and engaging The Last Mistress instead.
