Review

This is the second feature film of Serge Bozon, who is an actor as well as a director. This film reminds us of the recent subversive musical by Francois Ozon. While is like a 50’s Hollywood drama and musical in term of its gorgeous flamboyance, the aesthetics of is based on the 60’s European ‘mod’ subculture. The term ‘mod’ comesfrom ‘modern’ and was used for young British proletarians who rode scooters and created characteristic styles- later called the ‘Mods Look’ in the mid-60’s. The director depicts his merry scenario with minimalist sets. He places four young characters reminiscent of the Beatles, like the chorus in a classical play while the distinctive choreography of Pina Bausch is combined with popular British music of the 60’s. Moreover it uses mise-en-scene, obviously influenced by Bresson (his performance theory stressing the suppression of emotional expression) and Goddard (especially ). One wonders if the two soldiers Francois and Paul, called to help their brother suffering from aphasia and lethargy in his university dormitory, are the imitation and betrayal of cultural (cinematic) inheritance that the director of the 90’s is indebted to.
