Critic Reviews for Vive l'Amour
You could say it's two hours of three characters with one-track minds, a distended portrait of overgrown kids playing hide and seek.
Focusing on lives that come into physical contact yet remain separate the director conveys sexual desire in erotically charged manner, including a powerful masturbation scene
Audience Reviews for Vive l'Amour
Tsai is an amazingly talented director and brings those themes that he explored in his first film to a higher level with a nearly silent tale of young Taipei adults who long for any spark of love or connection as they endure the relentless grip of urban loneliness and hopelessness.
3 lonely souls in Taipei found themselves unknowingly sharing a single apartment. Vive L'Amour is an anti-film in itself that the dialogues were minimal and many long single shots were used to present the characters in a scrutinizing way. Enjoyable if you can withstand slow paced films.
a nearly wordless film that works as a kind of homage to antonioni's themes, especially in 'l'eclisse'. three characters share an apartment, unbeknownst to each other as they almost never interact, a metaphor for the anonymity and alienation of big city life. beautifully done. i'm working through tsai's filmography in order and i recommend it highly
