The garish, self-hating-lesbian-themed flick, La Répétition, is a garish enjoyment, sort of like dreaming k.d. lang is romancing you, only to wake up to discover your dachshund is where he shouldn't be.
Unsatisfying character study of two women who share an unhealthy relationship throughout the years. Pascale Bussieres is Louise, a periodontist, who is the more possessive and Emmanuelle Beart is Nathalie, a stage actress, who prefers a more open lifestyle. The depth of their intimacy is not clear until about midway through, and similarly much of the rest of their relationship lacks clarity for the viewer to get intricately involved. It doesn't help that Louise is manipulative and selfish, yet she's preferable to Nathalie's playwright boyfriend Matthias (Dani Levy) who redefines the epithet 'asshole.' I felt sorry for Nathalie caught between these negative influences, but then she too abruptly changes her behavior which left me wondering whether several scenes got accidentally left on the cutting-room floor? The English title I have seen attached to this film is Replay, but actually 'La Repetition' means Rehearsal as Nathalie attends a series of rehearsals for a play by a big-name producer, much to the anger of Matthias. Is this a metaphor for her life, that she is doomed to repeat the same role with these malcontents until she summons the strength to find and accept her true nature? I believe that's giving writer/director Catherine Corsini too much credit by trying to do her work for her.
