In this topic I vent on how I don't like this movie.
So don't read it if you're just going to get annoyed with it. I know I get annoyed when I see movies I love being derided. But I feel impelled to get my anger down in words. You may feel the same way and we'll have solidarity.
Yes, it is one of those topics by someone that shouldn't have bothered posting. One of those topics by some random idiot that is too stupid to understand the film that is quite clearly a sensational work of art.
I'm not a philistine. Far from it. I am not 12 (or 20 or 25 even). I like Fellini and Bergman! (proving that I am able to appreciate good films by real directors).
Une femme est une femme is, in my opinion, i.e. *I* think, a load of crap. It is:
Trying too hard
Self-consciously zany (as if zany wasn't bad enough).
It has no right to be any of those things. It is a film by someone who believed his own hype following earlier successes. I AM a genius after all! I think I'll poop out some crap without trying as I am unable to make anything that isn't brilliant, it's just who I am. That's meant to be Goddard speaking, I haven't had any success, though look forward to being changed into a lazy idiot like Goddard once it arrives.
This film should be called 'Oh! Aren't we clever!'.
It takes A LOT for me to not watch a movie or read a book through to the end. I will knuckle down and plough through almost anything in the name of being able to hold my head up high and say "I have seen" or "I have read". I HAD to turn this film off at 41 minutes as I was beginning to get physically angry and uncomfortable at the sight of these arrogant people flouncing around, convinced they were on the cutting edge of all human achievement.
Insufferable, unbearable, and maddening.
