L'Amour Fou (1969)
Critic Reviews for L'Amour Fou
L'Amour Fou, while possibly not a masterpiece, is a work of such interest, skill and intelligence that it deserves to be something better than a legend -- in what is, after all, still its own time.
Rivette's claim to the status of a key innovator in contemporary cinema began with this film.
You'd think a biopic with this title would have some passion, craziness or at least spark. But L'Amour Fou is surprisingly tepid about everything, to the point of being a little boring.
Directed with rigorous tact, L'Amour fou is unconcerned with speaking through any historical framework. It is devoted, rather, to the calm, thoughtful, and ultimately elusive reflections of M. Bergé on the dismantling of a legacy.
A true must-see if you adore fashion, interior design, the Sixties and Seventies, travel, and an exploration of depressed genius with guest appearances by Andy Warhol and Mick Jagger.
