Critic Reviews for The New Girlfriend
A swirl of gender confusion, "The New Girlfriend" tosses all the he/she/we question marks it can find in a tale of contemporary confused sexuality.
It's less than it should've been, and a little mild. But Ozon makes it glide with confidence, in or out of heels.
Duris in drag looks like a refugee from the New York Dolls, but his character aspires to nothing more than life as a bourgeois, pearl-clad mom.
The New Girlfriend is a funny, delicate, subtly flavored dish deliciously prepared by François Ozon - idiosyncratic and unforgettable.
A wildly entertaining work, one that manages to be simultaneously funny, touching, slightly unnerving and undeniably sexy to behold, regardless of where your predilections may lie.
Audience Reviews for The New Girlfriend
Duris delivers a profoundly sensitive performance without a hint of stereotype in this surprising drama that understands the complexity of sexuality, despite a few narrative missteps especially in the second half (the scene with Duris and Personnaz in the shower is nonsensical).
Ozon has done it again.
