It's like a film that Philippe Garrel might have made, although Paula isn't a thousand miles from Agnès Varda's Cléo.
The film's score, by Julie Roue, is perfectly suited to the material as it both jazzy and a tad melancholic, underlining how Paula seems to move through a world that mostly seems to be oblivious to her presence.
Remember the names of Léonor Serraille and Laetitia Dosch...The pair have created a hilarious, touching and magnetic Jeune Femme with Paula, a character you won't be able to forget.
Laetitia Dosch is hypnotic as the 31-year-old heroine of the bracingly peppery French indie drama Jeune Femme (aka Montparnasse Bienvenüe).
Progressively devolves into cheap identity politics. Paula becomes a form of clown, reflecting back on a conveniently unnuanced world of patriarchal and bourgeois villainy.
It often feels like there is a great film within Jeune Femme, but it just got lost in the editing suite; the emotional essence of Paula's struggle remains, but it just doesn't hit as hard as it should do.
What stands out in this film is its bravery in demonstrating instability with sympathy. [Full Review in Spanish]
Montparnasse Bienvenue is a story of reconciliation: that of Paula with herself, and that of the spectator with the characters in full self-discovery. [Full review in Spanish]
Is the woman whose adult capabilities are a thin veneer over hysteria a rebellious threat to patriarchal expectations, or a perfect product thereof?
With Jeune Femme, Sérraille has captured an at times painfully real story, with a brilliantly crafted and unapologetically brash character at the heart of it.
Jeune Femme memorably evokes the handsome jungle that is Paris...and Laetitia Dosch is hilarious as the unhinged and almost lovable Paula.
An interesting and not always likable character, Paula makes a great lead. There's no clear timeline, just progress, and it's told well and with humour.
