Therese And Isabelle Review


Good
Ah, young love. How could it be better? Well, if it's two young girls, duh!

Essy Persson's Therese arrives at prep school, full of wide-eyed inquisitiveness and, well, a little curiosity. We aren't 20 minutes into the film before she's tailing Isabelle (Anna Gaël) and poking her head into lesbianism. Not much, unfortunately, comes of this outside of the expected mushy gushy feelings that develop and the inevitable scandal it creates in the school. Told in flashback from a now older Therese as she wanders the halls of the school, Radley Metzger develops a story with substantial grace and beauty (best seen in an immortal shot of Persson raising her head to peer out over Gaël's bare ass), but not much substance.

Carmen, Baby Review


OK
Uta Levka gets the honors in this go-round to be Radley Metzger's oft-naked vamp. In this rendition of the classic opera and novel Carmen (dig the title), Carmen is a bit of a tramp who woos a cop who's trying to arrest her and then a rock star, despite the fact that she's married. Jealousy rears its head eventually, with disastrous consequences. (Hell, if you saw the way Carmen could dance -- it's just her and a long-necked Chianti bottle -- you'd feel the same!)

Metzger earns points for picking good source material, but in his typical fashion he meanders all over the place en route to telling his story. He gets around to it eventually, but there are so many cocked eyebrows and sultry glances that it's easy to miss the actual plot amidst all the sexy subtlety.
