An interesting character study that follows Lola (Sabrina Grdevich), a young woman with a bully for a husband, who befriends Sandra (Joanna Going) a prostitute, only to see her murdered. She then decides to assume the murdered woman's life and travel to visit Sandra's mother from whom Sandra has been estranged. It was fascinating to watch this heretofore mousy woman take on the murdered woman's personality and begin to assert herself in different situations. The story moves from the streets and seedier areas of Vancouver out into the Canadian Rockies, and the cinematography brightens considerably in the wide open spaces, contributing to the change that Lola undergoes. The story left the viewer with a couple of unanswered questions, but on the whole proved a quite satisfying experience. The supporting cast was not stellar, but more than capable. Colm Feore plays the husband as a ruthless psychological abuser who belittles Lola at every turn. One feels little sympathy for him when his sense of loss begins to set in, but that is what the filmmaker intended. Solid effort.

[font=Century Gothic][color=red]"Lola" is a 1961 French film directed by Jacques Demy. The lead character is Lola(nee Cecile) played by Anouk Aimee who is a cabaret dancer with a young son. There is another Cecile in the film who is just shy of 14 years old. The younger Cecile mirrors her elder's life but the two Ceciles never meet. Instead, they interact with an American sailor and a local character in search of direction. An early scene sets the stage for the rest of the film, when one of the lead characters is late to work and not for the first time. [/color][/font][font=Century Gothic][color=red]Basically, "Lola" is a bittersweet concoction about near-misses, happenstance, and what does happen when connections are made. [/color][/font]
