So from first watch I definitely enjoyed this movie, but felt like I was definitely missing the greater piece to why it’s so great. Fast forward to today when I finished reading The Idiot (which I adored), and now I can truly appreciate what a masterful and passionate adaptation L’amour Braque is. I will always have such a vast appreciation for adaptations that are able to have a filmmaker’s heart shine through it. I’ve always been able to appreciate this with…
The world is big, but sometimes the things that effect your own life can become even bigger and the only way out is to escape into your own world with your own rules. Suicide has never been something I’ve necessarily considered, but the temptation of it has been something I often think about. Much like standing on the edge of a rooftop or sitting in between the train tracks, there’s really no threat there but it can be quite an unhealthy coping mechanism. I don’t really know what I’m saying, but this movie was very special much like Anno’s other works. Tomorrow is my birthday.
I’m always excited to watch any film about the life of nun’s because it can be such a palpable subject depending on who’s handling it. This is only my second Rivette film but I already am under the impression I’m a big fan. The use of the set and the way it’s filmed to represent the contrast of Suzanne’s mother superiors is great. The huge but oppressive walls of her first convent verses the beauty and suffocation of the second, really cool stuff.
Pretty effective film in terms of flow of time and memory, in fact maybe the best I’ve seen in scrambled in a film, but I feel like I’m still missing something. Maybe that’s how I’m supposed to feel, but I think I got more out of Hiroshima Mon Amour, maybe I’ll have to give this one a rewatch.
