A bit of a different post here today as I am writing on a film that I haven't seen. I first became aware of this 2004 French film when I bought the astonishing, and almost too intense, John Cale soundtrack. I am a big fan of Beatrice Dalle and read several widely varying reviews on the film ranging from high praise to overwhelming disgust.
It seems though that the film has fell off the map. A dvd was apparently scheduled by Tartan last year in Britain and France but was either never released or slipped out of print immediately.
I am just curious as to if anyone reading this blog might have seen this film and what their thoughts were.
The film was written and directed by C.S. Leigh and is apparently near silent, with only Cale's minimalistic piano score and an occasional brief slices of dialogue. I have read that it is made up of just 29 long shots which I find very intriguing.
I might be stabbing in the dark but any comments on this film, or links to an available dvd, would be greatly appreciated.
