Week eight's category is arguably the biggest and hardest to define of all the genres: Drama.
A German student, Stefan, who has finished his studies, then decides to have an adventure. After hitch-hiking to Paris, he commits crimes to get money. He then meets a free-spirited American girl, Estelle, who he follows to Ibiza, and then begins a sad & dark path into heroin addiction. Barbet Schroeder's first film, it is also notable for its soundtrack, which was composed by the band Pink Floyd, who he would also use in his next film, La Vallée.
Although I am not a huge Pink Floyd fan, I have to say that the main reason of my interest in watching this movie was precisely the music, but I did not even get music while watching this thing. Music was was completely irrelevant in the film's development. But besides that, this film was a complete mess. The first 30 minutes or so were a bit interesting because the "film-noirish" plot seemed a little promising at first in spite of the horrible acting involved (only Mimsy Farmer was somewhat decent in her role).
For almost two hours whatever was going on did not go anywhere, it was boring as hell, it was a total waste of time, and I would…
Due giovani si incontrano a Parigi: lui è tedesco, lei è
americana. Si amano e si trasferiscono ad Ibiza.
Ma lei inizia lui all'eroina, e ben presto diventano due tossici.
L'amore senza limiti in piena era hippie, dove uno sballo
ne chiamava un altro, senza domande.
Anche perché l'amore stesso è una droga, un porsi al di fuori
delle regole comuni, una dipendenza cge può portare fino
alle più estreme conseguenze.
Not heavy on telling a story, More is the kind of movie that instead lingers on through it's atmosphere and emotional output. Beautiful to behold (especially Mimsy Farmer) and featuring some stellar tunes from Pink Floyd; More is a movie for those that can appreciate a movie that does not necessarily tell us a story of the common kind.
"More lured me in with a promise of hazy, sun soaked nudity and gauzy dresses, Instead it delivered a disjointed story two boring people who didn’t really seem to care about each other ruining lives that never mattered." -bigshotmovieclub.com/2014/02/22/big-shot-more/
Interesting late 60's look into the path of heroin addiction that doesn't follow the usual style of trippy psychedelic filming techniques but uses a more personal approach that works despite its awkward narration and sometimes wooden performances,but in the end its still going to be best known as the Pink Floyd soundtrack movie.
