Critic Reviews for On Tour (Tournée)
[Amalric gives] us the flavor of life on tour - the sudden connections and unexpected intimacies that occur when very different people are thrown together.
There's a strong sense of the tour as work - bland hotels, travel co-ordination, Muzak - as well as the situation's propensity to let cooped-up emotions, from anger to lust, marinate.
On Tour offers a series of passing pleasures but fails to cohere into a meaningful whole.
A likably rambling survey of ephemeral community, a portrait of the artist as washed-up family man and pimp, and a quasi-documentary about brassy stage persona.
Amalric se estabelece cada vez mais como um dos nomes mais importantes do cinema francês - e Turnê é apenas a coroação de uma trajetória merecedora de infinitos aplausos.
Audience Reviews for On Tour (Tournée)
Amalric proves that he is not only a great actor but also an extremely talented director, displaying a lot of confidence and maturity with this hugely involving film that doesn't need any effort to make us empathize with its characters and want to know more about them.
Mathieu Amalric's directorial debut is a surprisingly soulful account of a burlesque troupe's journey across France. Amalric is excellent as the tour's producer, who finds his tattered home life following him on a wild and difficult trip. A bit aimless at times, but there is a surprising amount of pathos to be found as Amalric examines a life ill spent.
Starring Mathieu Almaric, that guy from the Diving Bell and the Butterfly, I was really looking forward to the fun and camp "On Tour" could have been about a Frenchman leading his troupe of American burlesque dancers through out France. Unfortunately, no one could agree on what the script and story line should have been about. Mathieu was wasted in this film as I would have liked to have them explore a bit about his troubled relationship past to shed light on his current intimacy issues and eventual theatrical triumph as show producer, but the film took a fatal detour into exploring a back story with one of the dancers.
Hmm, I was slightly offended the American dancers were portrayed in such a one dimensional crass manner. Sorry, we Americans are NOT all trailer trash, overweight and grotesque, but I guess the French were trying to visually portray the definition of the word "burlesque" accurately? Here in the States, the burlesque movement isn't about the exaggeration of women's bodies, sensuality, etc. it is about the expression of artistic and feminine freedom/empowerment in the art of strip tease. Ahh, so I won't take cultural offense since I'm such a Francophile.
But seriously, this movie jumped the shark by turning into one hot mess - which I suppose is an accurate slice of life depiction of the life of Mathieu's character.
