A lot was Cache/Hidden in this film. Including the whole point of it. Hidden well, because I couldn’t find it. After 1.5 hour I was wondering if there ever was going to be a point at all. And then the very unsatisfying ending, nah let’s not waste any more words on it, I didn’t like it.
There was one memorable moment for me in this film though, and it has nothing whatsoever to do with the film as such.
While watching a scene (the film’s location is France) where a car was driving on a road (where else should it drive, but you got the point), while we, as the viewers, were following this car I thought :
Hey, this car is driving on the wrong side of the road !
I am not making it up, my head really thought that. 4 months is obviously long enough for the brain to switch to the other side.
It’s going to be a warm and colourful weekend in London with Europride coming up.

I completely agree that the whole point of this movie was extremely well hidden. Strangely enough this movie was very well received in the review and on imdb. It is worth watching, but nothing more than that.
Yes it got quite good reviews over here too. Either I completely misunderstood this film, or the fact that the point was missing actually results in good reviews. If that is the case, I have to keep that in mind …
Actually I enjoyed it (well not “enjoyed” it, it’s hard to enjoy a film with that moment in it, but I thought is was good). Maybe I was sold by the pretentious reviews… anyway I reviewed it too.
If you see Daffyd, wish him well!
@Tyger : well I got as far as understanding what had been happening in Autteils past, but could not really link that back to the video’s to be honest.
I normally like French cinema, but this just wasn’t my cup of tea, so to speak.
