  • Enjoyable, good film

    I happened upon this film last week while switching channels, and I ended up sitting spellbound watching 3 films in a row of TCM's Jean Seberg retrospective. It was very enjoyable, as I only knew her from Breathless, and of the 3, this one had the most impact on me. I think it is a good, enjoyable film. It is an interesting glimpse into the early 1960s lifestyle and attitudes amongst some groups. Seberg is beautiful in it. Perhaps because I am a single female who lived in Europe when I was 21-23 and again when I was 30-40, and am thinking about moving back there now, I even found the "message" of, and various relationships in, the movie quite close to reality, and thought-provoking for me personally. I want to see this again, but it's not available for sale or rent. I will be waiting to see it in October, when it's next shown here.

  • An Awful Movie!

    The voice of the young Frenchman Guy is dubbed!! As is almost invariably the case, dubbed voices are disastrous. This one has to be heard to be believed!In my opinion, this movie is well below the standards set by TCM in the past. I don't know how this dawg slipped in there, but I hope that this sort of thing can be stopped before it takes hold.Are you listening, TCM?

  • Charming, melancholy New Wave homage

    An American production that emulates early French New Wave films, this one is far more pleasant than that description sounds. Mainly interesting for how it shows New Wave storytelling innovations' international influence before the more heralded Bonnie and Clyde, the film is still entertaining enough on its own.Based on two short stories, the first half focuses on an awkward romance between Jean Seberg and the type of insecure, abrasive student Jean-Pierre Laud would often play for Godard and Truffaut. The second skips to four years later, as Seberg, now a socialite, sorts through her lovers and makes a tough life decision.Both halves are good, though the transition is odd. I felt that the first half was superior though, feeling like the sort of thing Godard could have stretched into a full-length. It also features a hilarious, heart-breaking scene in a cheap hotel room that stands head and shoulders above the rest of the film.This film has apparently never been released on video or DVD, sadly. Its definitely worth a look for fans of early 60 French cinema who want to examine the films' worldwide impact.
