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)
[font=Century Gothic]In "The Intruder", Louis(Michel Subor) enjoys spending his days frolicking with his dogs near the French-Swiss border while he spends his nights with a local woman. One night an intruder breaks in, but Louis kills him and quietly disposes of the body. This event along with his weakening health convince him that it is time to move on...[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]Directed by Claire Denis, "The Intruder" is a beautiful but opaque film. Early on, it is not even clear as to who the movie is supposed to be about, as a young border guard's family vies for attention. But the movie does eventually come into focus. Not giving any details about Louis' past mirrors the character's emotional detachment from the world around him.[/font]
