La Chambre Verte (The Green Room) Reviews

May 23, 2020
One of Truffaut's slightest efforts.
December 12, 2017
If Truffaut is going into [Henry] James scholarship, he should cite his sources, not his own fantasies.

"The Green Room" may deserve a special place in the annals of misbegotten literary adaptations.

More neurotic than poetic.

Francois Truffaut's testimony of obsession, The Green Room, is perhaps the most unheralded film of his career, and surely one of his most personal.
November 13, 2007
Iseems his darkest work, and the odd contrast between the florid and the frigid is truly disconcerting.
November 13, 2007
It is a most demanding, original work and one must meet it on its own terms, without expectations of casual pleasures.

Truffaut's lack of range as an actor is not helped by the script's purple prose.
November 13, 2007
Truffaut is attempting a philosophical disquisition on the presence of the lost, the ways in which the dead remain a part of our lives, but his theme can't escape the morbid eccentricity of his characters.
