Critic Reviews for Roman de gare
Lelouch is now 71 years old, and I bet he's never had as much fun with a film. Roman de Gare threads plots and characters and twists together like a demented weaver.
Even if the game isn't entirely successful, it's fun to play along.
Forty years after his breakout success as a filmmaker, Claude Lelouch makes something of a comeback with his playful and sexy whodunit, Roman de Gare.
Lelouch's splintered narrative, mostly related in flashback, plays games with the characters without delivering much of a payoff.
Stylist Claude Lelouche (A Man and a Woman) is still full of surprises in his choice of genres and subjects.
Audience Reviews for Roman de gare
At the end of act one we discover the answers to many of the film's questions: is this guy a rapist on the run, a ghost writer, or a man abandoning his family? Structurally, this is awfully early to answer so many questions that have such import on the ensuing action. But the rest of the film does not disappoint. Despite its structural flaws, it's still able to re-invent itself as it moves along. Exceptional performances by he of the interesting-looking face, Dominique Pinon, and Audrey Dana, who plays the emotionally damaged but still somehow indomitable Huguette, keep us caring about these characters no matter what story imprisons them.
a quite well plotted and acted thriller.
Seemed promising to me, but ended up as just another not-so-bad drama. It's okay for one time watch though.
