Slight, and skims a lot, but like the best of Varda’s work, it finds a delicate soul behind potentially shallow foreground
Just so wanted this to work and the fact that this is a personal story is so moving and touching. But honestly there are very few choices visually, sonically, or performance wise that work at all. It’s odd that an autobiographical passion project feels so limp, hackneyed, and labored. Adewale was so sweetly endearing in the Q&A that you wished (and still wish) the best for him.
Ugh. This isn’t the type of thing I want to hate.
