372 le Matin (Betty Blue) (37.2 Degrees in the Morning) Reviews

June 26, 2009
It's a passionate love story executed in a dull fashion.

Beineix's film is awash with the humour and cool of his debut, Diva, but lacks the cohesion to sustain its weighty ambition.

If Betty Blue teaches us anything -- and there's a good chance it doesn't -- it's that life is full of little mysteries.

Love is not the same thing as nudity. This may seem obvious, but I feel it ought to be explained to director Jean-Jacques Beineix.

If Dalle finds with remarkable clarity the one note that her role calls for -- the petulant volcano -- she can't support the existential weight Beineix wants to drop on her.

Perhaps what is least satisfying about Beineix' effort is its implied theme -- that women are mere muses to be addled, suffocated, and sacrificed to revitalize the imaginations of men.
