This is a weird movie, but a very enjoyable one. The story is somewhat complex, but it all makes some sense in the end. It is surrealistic, very funny, and one can't help but fall in love with both the characters. I truly wish people like that existed in real life. This was my first Rivette, and now I am certainly tempted to watch more of his works. Also, it makes reference to Les Vampires, so there's is that.
This is creativity at its very best. Jacques Rivette's highly imaginative movie, everything is pitch-perfect with it. It's like watching Bunuel's surrealism, Bergman's imagination, Fellini's charms and Lynch's illusions in one movie. This dreamy movie is must-watch for people who admire surrealistically creative cinema! Highly Recommended!
The film comes back to haunt you from the past, Paris looks so old, then you just get caught up in the whole movie and end up smiling, happy that its about being young again and everyone is playing their parts, even if its the same part, its that magic about being young.
