Movie Info

A female producer (Susan Clarke) is hounded by studio executives to the point she considers suicide in this improvisational film. Television segments of recent political assassinations are shown to parallel the death of artistic freedom. Viva, Eddie Constantine and Peter Bogdonavich also appear in this symbolic feature of creative control and executive ignorance.

The result is a pleasant, sometimes humorous blend of style and technique that ultimately is unsuccessful.

A film bedevilled by its intellectualism.

There is so much that is so pleasant in Lions Love that I wish Miss Varda hadn't tried to give it a larger significance.

Top Critic

The five films Agnès Varda made during two stints in California remain among her most inspired, finding her at a succession of cultural and cinematic crossroads which evidence her uncommon adaptability and insatiable curiosity.

Nothing great emerges, but the free-form drama has many loopy moments and is very funny.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Varda's use of the camera and natural light is fresh and original.
