Lyrical yet succinct.
A morbid and self-important homosexual Jules & Jim for the new millennium.
Viewers are either going to walk out after 10 minutes or, like this tolerant critic, get caught up in the sordid lives of the three misfits and stick around for the ambiguous ending.
Lifshitz successfully maneuvers his trio of outcasts toward a state of grace: His vision of misfit utopianism, in its own quiet way, is as defiant as anything in Fassbinder.
The woe-is-me, pity-please ambiance with which Lifschitz has suffused his movie becomes more than a little hard to take.
A weirder ménage à trois you will never encounter.
Lif****z obviously hopes for the best for Stéphanie and friends, yet the film is filled with doubts and sadness.
Several storylines are hinted at but never fully developed, and some draggy scenes dampen the whole Wild affair.
Stony and statuesque, Michelini is an excellent casting choice: Her impassive face and dispassionate voice serve as a carefully constructed protective mask that hides her pain, and which she rarely lets slip.
The film explains why Stéphanie and her bisexual boyfriends need each other, but doesn't depict why they are drawn to each other, making the ménage à trois mechanical.
A remarkable film.
The primary impression is lots of moping and mooning, plus a song at the beginning with some of the worst lyrics you've ever heard.
This is definitely not an action packed thriller. Think of it more as a French version of Transamerica. Stephanie Michelini plays a pre-surgical transsexual prostitute who returns home to care for her dying mother. A moving performance. Her two live-in lovers join her in the countryside. The entire film consists of the interplay between these three unlikely lovers and their reminiscences of their lives up to this point. Poignant and thoughtful, rather than wild and wooly, it presents a solid argument for allowing people to be who they are without trying to make them fit society's approval. So if your thing is bang-bang shoot-'em-ups, this won't work for you. But if you are willing to be uncomfortable and to follow this non-linear story, you might be rewarded with a new sympathy for a sad segment of society. This viewer found the relaxed pace and the scenery to be quite enough to keep one entertained.
