Brief Crossing is brief indeed, but it packs several gut punches along the way. Make this a date movie, and you'll have plenty to talk about when it's over.
Sizzling erotic drama.
[font=Century Gothic][color=red]As a subject for a film, sex is surprisingly not going to automatically make for interesting subject matter.(James Toback generally has proven this and so far hasn't directed a movie I've liked. In case you're wondering, Fingers(1978) is one of the most overrated movies of all time.) There can be plenty of sex in a film, but it won't succeed if it overwhelms everything else in the movie. French director Catherine Breillat's films have mostly been about sex and they've certainly been a mixed bag so far.(I've only seen four of her films, which only span the past few years.) Romance was boring and reminded me a little of Belle du Jour. Fat Girl was just one prolonged shaggy dog joke. But then she moved onto filmmaking, specifically her own, in Sex Is Comedy. And that was a good movie, letting us into her psyche. And yesterday, I saw Brief Crossing which I liked and was about an Englishwoman in her thirties giving a first class education in sex and gender studies to a French teenager. [/color][/font]
