Critic Review - New York Press

Denis' elliptical narrative avoids politics. This siege tale ignores the details of colonial life to gloss its chaotic collapse. Her equanimity is tiresome.

"Denis' elliptical narrative avoids politics. This siege tale ignores the details of colonial life to gloss its chaotic collapse. Her equanimity is tiresome. Go see this movie now because I said it sucks."

This is by far the best written, most articulate take on this film in this forum. Great job. And, I like how you take it to the other critics for their unsupported fawning over the French director.

The first three comments posted here speak to the quality of their authors.

I might add, that this film is devoid of any intelligence. It neither educates nor entertains, which is a capital crime. It is self-indulgent crap by Ms. Denis (who should know better) with beautiful cinematography. Its stale triteness has the resonance of most porn.
