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.

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.

TV Guide

Varda's film teeters on the edge of total absurdity, running roughshod over cinematic conventions of all kinds while retaining a lucid outsider's perspective on its milieu.
