Audience Reviews for À propos de Nice (Nizza)
Jean Vigo's first film is a travelogue that employs many camera techniques, hard to believe this was his first film experience, to portray many satirical montages and support his personality and beliefs. The sense of everyday life and routine are captured in a way that makes them both mundane yet purposeful while having a social viewpoint. A prime example is the way the rich try to maintain composure and come off nervously and stiff, meanwhile the poor children could give a damn and so come off natural and composed. Truly a work of art and a beautiful film. Essential watching for all cinephiles!
No narrative story...just a montage of beach-side activities at Nice, plus a few delightful bits of surrealism (wow, that flash of nudity was a surprise). A young filmmaker could learn more about pace and editing from watching this short than from reading a whole textbook. If Jean Vigo were alive today, I think he'd have a few "upskirt photo" websites bookmarked.
Half interesting, half boring.
