Critic Reviews for A Single Girl
A Single Girl delivers 80 unbroken and ultimately irritating minutes in the life of a pretty hotel waitress (Virginie Ledoyen).
A stunning demonstration of moral and existential suspense in relation to duration, much like Agnes Varda's 1961 Cleo From 5 to 7.
Even though nothing much happens during the course of the movie (Valerie spends over half the running time wandering around the inside of a hotel), this is a thoroughly engrossing motion picture.
Benoit Jacquot's small, dazzling film A Single Girl is so buoyant, sharp-eyed and casually sexy it comes closer than any recent movie to capturing the essence of youth itself.
A Single Girl shines because of Ledoyen, but sputters in not taking her character anyplace.
Audience Reviews for A Single Girl
"La Fille Seule" French film with English subtitles (Oct. 1996 Director: Benoit Jacquot) French movie...i just rented this move from Netflix....EVER HAD ONE OF THOSE DAYS??? Aye yai yai!! Poor, beautiful little Valerie (Virginie Ledoyen) in this story not only has a rugged first day at her new job in a quality hotel as a room service servant (in full tux!) But before staring her new job Valerie tells her boyfriend she is pregnant with his child, Right off the bat, there is trouble! Rude sexually harrassing co-worker first calls her a "little slut" as he comes on to her when she is a patron's room delivering breakfast...then just moments later imposes himself right behind her..and asks her, "Do you like it doggy style?" To which she responds by slapping his face (Go Valerie!!) Touching tale of real woman issues....I enjoyed this film! it is so extreme you could almost see it as a farce..if the subject matter were not so serious! Magnifique!
