Les Favoris de la lune (Favourites of the Moon) Reviews
March 27, 2009
'Les Favoris de la lune' is the first French film by Georgian born director Otar Iosseliani.
There's not much point trying to explain the plot, because really there isn't much of one. The best way to describe it would be to say it's like Altman's 'Short Cuts', only Parisian style.
The film follows a wealth of different characters from terrorists to New Wave singers. What does link all these characters together though is that they all seem to have something to do with an 18th century dinner set and a 19th century painting.
Admittingly some of the episodes were rather funny but I'll also admit I was a little disappointed, especially since Iosseliani's earlier work looks so good. That said, it's still worth watching if you get the chance.
