Critic Reviews for L'Amour Fou
L'Amour Fou, while possibly not a masterpiece, is a work of such interest, skill and intelligence that it deserves to be something better than a legend -- in what is, after all, still its own time.
Rivette's claim to the status of a key innovator in contemporary cinema began with this film.
Directed with rigorous tact, L'Amour fou is unconcerned with speaking through any historical framework. It is devoted, rather, to the calm, thoughtful, and ultimately elusive reflections of M. Bergé on the dismantling of a legacy.
A true must-see if you adore fashion, interior design, the Sixties and Seventies, travel, and an exploration of depressed genius with guest appearances by Andy Warhol and Mick Jagger.
Audience Reviews for L'Amour Fou
Rivette has worked the concept of actors performing a work and the effect it has on their lives in many of his films (Va Savior, Gang of Four) but here it is done to perfection. The performances by Bulle Ogier and Jean Pierre Kalfon are the finest of their careers. A masterpiece.
