Critic Reviews for La Truite
Losey's penultimate film is one of his most assured, depicting with unusual objectivity the impact of a type of personality met with in life from time to time, but not often in the movies.
If there's anything more boring than movie characters with preordained lives, it's a movie that tips us off they're preordained.
Mr. Losey, at the age of 73, has no shortage of observations to make, but The Trout isn't able to present them in a coherent form.
La Truite, Joseph Losey's best film in a decade, is a plum pudding for auteurists.
A bleak romantic comedy that chronicles the life of cold fish Isabelle Huppert.
Audience Reviews for La Truite
In "La Truite," Galuchat(Jacques Spiesser) and his wife Frederique(Isabelle Huppert) are together in a marriage of convenience. He is gay. She is asexual. So while they do not have much, they make the most of their time together. On one such outing at a bowling alley(love that aquarium), they meet a party that includes the financiers Rambert(Jean-Pierre Cassel) and St. Genis(Daniel Olbrychski). While Rambert's wife, Lou(Jeanne Moreau), worries about some of her husband's business dealings, St. Genis invites Frederique along to Japan with him on a business trip. "La Truite" is a moderately intriguing movie, about as one character puts it, finding one's place in the world. Sadly, the pop synth music is not the only thing that dates this movie, as there are also the attitudes of the time, with the movie needlessly going for a psychological explanation in flashbacks that at first are hard to tell from the present action. In any case, the need for money never goes out of style.
