great feeling of the period.. but what is the problem with the actors?


i loved the mood of the 60's, the references, the politic, the scenarios, the soundtrack...

but why the actors was so artificial all the time? the main character was ok, but what about his first girlfriend? who moved to London? she was just repeating lines from the script. the same thing happened to others actors...

I agree, the actress who played Laure was terrible. Plus, her voice was annoying. The

SPOILER

scene when the house is on fire should have been really dramatic and she has no real reaction. Even if strung outon heroin, you'd have expected more drama.

Totally agree with Infoed.
Lola Creton and Clement Métayer are both excellent and so is the actor who plays Alain.

where did Infoed said that

"Lola Creton and Clement Métayer are both excellent and so is the actor who plays Alain."

I agree with Infoed on what he says re the actress who plays Laure...

I read that scene as the fire was in her imagination and she committed suicide. There were no screams from other people and no one outside was reacting to the house being on fire when she went to the window to jump.

The whole film was about living in a dream world vs returning to reality and how sometimes we must leave the the ones we love in order to do both. All the characters except hers made back to the "real" world weather it was art, film, school, or being a full time revolutionary. She was the only one who couldn't return to the real world so she killed herself.

I would not say it was a problem with the actors, but rather with the characters. As Desepticon stated, the characters are in conflict with their political motivations. Sometimes they contradicted themselves regarding these political motivations.

I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.
