Les Uns et les Autres

"Grim"

Les Uns et les Autres Review


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.

Aka Bolero.
