Critic Reviews for The Intruder (L'Intrus)
While it may take a few viewings to sort the details out, much about L'Intrus lingers, shimmering quietly in the memory.
An interior epic with epic exteriors, a film with very little dialogue, where the pictures (photographed by the great Agnès Godard), actors and the juxtaposition of both tell the story.
Never has Denis demanded so much from audiences as with this shimmering enigma, at once intimate and epic, but it's worth the effort and then some.
A beautiful, complex work that challenges viewers to mentally sift interior and exterior journeys.
Denis' film -- which may be her most intricately constructed and intensely beautiful to date -- is one that transcends words and stories, a movie to be felt rather than rationalized.
Audience Reviews for The Intruder (L'Intrus)
While I appreciate minimalist dialogue, and it was cinematographically beautiful at times, I found this too slow and boring.
An extremely murky script and cinematography together doom this picture. As for the acting? Well, there really isn't any. The players are only occasionally glimpsed in the darkness. Some critic here who describes L'Intrus as "Impressionistic" is clueless.

He has heart problems, seeks a transplant, and then goes in search of a son sired years before in Tahiti. Will his body accept his heart? Will his son accept his offer?[/size][/font] [center][img]http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_3mCOm4wxK3M/SOy1n2KGnyI/AAAAAAAAA6Y/OmaTJkXjsRc/s400/intruder.jpg[/img][/center] [font=Times New Roman][size=4]Honestly, I don't really know what to say. L'Intrus is first and most obvious and treat in cinematography. It's up there as one of the best visual experiences I've ever had. The Denis, Godard combination seems to be unstoppable. To say that I had any idea what was going on narrative-wise would be a bold-faced lie, though. I could follow the very basic narrative outline, but I had a lot of trouble figuring out most of this. I've grouped this in the same rating category as another film I know I like, but can't quite grasp - Zerkalo.[/size][/font]
