The Story of Marie and Julien Reviews

For a picture about the fantastic and supernatural, it's a surprisingly flat and unmagical affair.

All the story's power is allowed to leak away by the deliberative heaviness with which Rivette pads through his 150-minute narrative, with its exasperating lack of dramatic emphasis.

Far from bad, but academic and -- for once with this director -- overlong.

It's just dull.

["The Story of Marie and Julien"] is lovely to look at, gorgeously photographed by William Lubchansky.... But, the film never stirred my core.
