Criterion Collection Spine #695
(Foreign language film)
Come along for an up close, emotionally raw and personal journey of a young French girl blossoming into an adult.
"But I have infinite tenderness for you. I always will. My whole life."
Quip of the review: Any girl who mentions that she loves Scorsese and Kubrick films during a conversation at a bar is a keeper!
I am guessing that most people come into this sprawling romantic epic knowing the stigma that is attached to, with its intense pornographic level sex scenes. And while there are a couple of them in there, and they are every bit as explicit as you have heard, they also feel 100% earned and authentic.
