Lolo happily takes the rom-com road less travelled, the one marked "Danger."
I appreciated the effort Delpy, directing her sixth feature, puts forth in trying to spice up the genre. But that doesn't mean I enjoyed it.
Lolo is fun and fresh to look at: Violette's habitat is fashion-world, Centre-Pompidou new Paris, blessedly free of the Louvre-and-Seine shorthand that sells French movies to American audiences.
Delpy's portrayal - high-strung, neurotic, prone to mild hysterics - is so reminiscent of some of the actress's previous roles that it's hard to forget that you're watching Delpy, not Violette.
For all of its non-commonplace perspectives, the movie finally feels a bit thin.
As a character, Lolo is a conceit of indulgent parenting and never fully blooms.
Considering how her characters will often carry an impervious facade while privately fretting, "Lolo" may be the most ideal vehicle for her specific voice to date.
Julie Delpy is such a spectacular actress, especially in this role. It reminded me a little of her character in2 days in Paris, but more mature and twice as funny.
The film's intention is to be ludicrous and outrageous, taking from similar domestic comedies of the past, and it works just enough to keep you entertained, but by the end has you question "Lolo's" underdeveloped conclusion.
Perhaps Delpy and Boon are so popular in France that audiences will go to see them in an improbable rom-com with a tired premise; but even if you are a fan, you won't enjoy them in this movie.
Julie Delpy, who co-wrote the script with Eugenie Grandval, directs with the minimum of fuss, keeping the farce fast and funny.
An interesting and particular dark comedy with a very sharp humor. [Full review in Spanish]
Julie Delpy only shows us that she has an awful sense of humor and doesn't realize that most of her jokes and gags are horrible and unfunny, which is made even worse by the fact that most of the characters are so selfish and detestable, and Vincent Lacoste a terrible actor.
