Roman De Gare Review


Weak
Burdened by narrative congestion and a half-dozen false twist endings, Claude Lelouch's Roman de Gare (literally translated as Novel of Station) takes an unhampered approach to the literary thriller genre and in turn depletes its characters and ambitions of any urgency.

Best known for the one-time French hit A Man and a Woman, Lelouch begins his latest film with a singular female: Judith Ralitzer (Fanny Ardent), a celebrated novelist who has gained critical acclaim for her latest novel God, The Other. On a talk show, she rambles about the creative process and the hardships of imagination but neglects to mention that it's all a hoax. Ralitzer's book was in fact written by a ghostwriter named Pierre Laclos (Dominique Pinon).

Les Uns Et Les Autres Review


Weak
I love classical music, sure, but does Claude Lelouch's glorified music video really need three hours to tell its "story?" This disjointed, incoherent mess features long stretches of music and dancing (recalls Thriller), with little tidbits of narrative plot (spanning three generations during the first half of the 20th century) to hold it all together. Er, or not.

A Man And A Woman Review


Good
French writer/director Claude Lelouch remains a prolific artist (he even made a 9/11 movie), but it's one of his first films, made almost 40 years ago, for which he remains best known.

A Man and a Woman was France's definitive love story for a decade, the Love Story of its generation and a thoroughly French example of its take on romance. Laconic, wandering, and bordering on hopeless, it's easy to see why the film has more fans among the heartbroken than the lovey-dovey.

And Now... Ladies And Gentlemen Review


Good
He's a jewel thief that uses clever disguises to make off with millions in diamonds with every daylight heist and wants to get out of the business.

She's a jazz singer depressed by the weight of her past.

11'09''01 - September 11 Review


Good
Simple premise: Eleven filmmakers each get 11 minutes to put their thoughts about September 11, 2001 into film. Documentaries about 9/11 have certainly been made to date -- I'd be surprised if less than a dozen had been released -- and this very format has even been done before too (see our review of Underground Zero).

What September 11 has that the other films don't is star power and international perspective. The 11 directors who submit work here represent a walk of fame of international cinema. Though I'm not familiar with the work of Samira Makhmalbaf (Iran) or Idrissa Ouedraogo (Burkina-Faso), to name a few, names like Penn, Lelouch, Iñárritu, Nair, and Loach represent some major names.
