Audience Reviews for Anna
If you're smitten with Anna Karina and/or Serge Gainsbourg, "Anna" is a must-see. Otherwise, skip it. The plot is simple and stupid: A fashion photographer (Jean-Claude Brialy) accidentally snaps a picture of Karina's mousy character, and becomes obsessed with finding this exquisite vixen whom he can't identify. Turns out she's his own employee, and he's too dumb to realize this because she's not wearing her usual Clark Kent glasses in the shot. Most of the film consists of the two leads just walking the streets, daydreaming about love and singing Gainsbourg's quirky pop tunes. Gainsbourg (with his usual devilish, cynical persona) also shows up onscreen to sing a bit, as does a young, gorgeous Marianne Faithfull. The best song: "Sous le Soleil Exactement."
HAHA What a mess!! It's worth it for a couple of scenes, but the lack of plot and slightly off musical numbers take their toll. I love me some Anna Karina and Brialy and Serge and Marianne but this is just hilariously bad.
This is like a match made in Drew heaven... a musical starring Anna Karina from the 60s?! Sadly, the music is just not as catchy as I would like. The story itself is pretty basic and silly. Anna is a total twee / hipster / Manic Pixie Dream Girl... complete with Harry Potter glasses and bangin bangs. It's a pity this is not on DVD or Blu Ray. It's stupid that society lets relics and gems like this waste away by letting them fall out of print. I suppose being a made-for-tv film didn't help. Thank goodness for YouTube. I may watch this a second time down the road to see if I enjoy the music more.
