Audience Member Featuring one of the coolest, most unpredictable 'breaking the 4th wall' moment ever filmed. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Absolute silence, lights and shadows masterfully orchestrated, depressing gestures and a lavishing cinematography: that's Garrel's obscure and underrated masterpiece that shows us the true features that would constitute cinema as a pure art form, why silent masterpieces were what they were and how true auteurs of filmmaking succeeded outside their borders beyond a plot or just style over substance. This is magic, briefly speaking. It also serves as evidence that LSD can turn average moviemakers into masters temporarily... 99/100 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member <a></a> <img src="" width="240" border="0" /> Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Silent film without any music,intended to provoke excluding any shocking tensions that would characterize it as...immoral. A frivolous account of a couple in nausea (the adults were intoxicated with LSD all the time) and a small kid perplexing the distance in accordance to Garrel's hypnotic visuals thanks to Michel Fournier's spectacular camera lighting! This is not for the drowsy folks,this is pure cinematic form,no words,just vast landscape,stares,actions,a photographic series of self-reflection. Garrel surpassed this 6 years later with Les Hautes Solitudes. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Such an amazing experience. This may very well be the most brilliant use of black and white cinemintography that I have ever seen. The alienation of the family created is fascinating and the film almost gives off this post-apocalypic type feel. This is definetly one of my favorite pieces of cinema.
