      "Lonely and Impulsive"

      For what youth is like, French films can always bring different interpretations to the audience. As for Alex in the film, he seems to have everything, but in the end, he has nothing. This is an unpredictable love story, so that the characters in the film seem to have many seemingly unreasonable behaviors, but the director has already carefully paved the way with details in the previous article. The poetic monologue makes people immersed in it, savoring the romance and madness of this...

      bad blood

      Lize - Julie Delpy Julie Delpy. A 16-year-old girl who stole the forbidden fruit, an indescribable angel, rode a motorcycle, chased her lover, and finally watched the dead Alex turn and leave... "We broke up anyway" exposed a youth who couldn't bear the weight . The moment I saw her on the screen was really amazing, and I felt that only movies can turn back time.

      bad blood memo

      Alex - Denis Lavant)
      sentimental, romantic, precocious. The turn of his life is a surprise. Because of his withdrawn nature, he can only notice those bubble-like details, which is a blessing from God. I am exhausted, and the world seen from its eyes is indeed enviable. He looks paranoid, miserable, his parents died prematurely, he was tortured in prison, and his stomach was stiff, but all this could not bury the emotional person living in his body to find his own life, and that person...

      Post-view notes

      Isn't Alex the footless bird? Wake up every day with a belly like cement, want to start life again, leave old girlfriends who love each other, leave Paris without leaving a trace, go on dangerous plans, fall in love with another woman who doesn't love him, lose his own life . Crazy and poetic, a journey in search of meaning in life but towards destruction. I really liked the part where Alex ran on the street with the radio music. He was free at the moment of running, letting the impact of...

      The most beautiful and romantic cliché drama

      The story is very simple. The prodigal son wants to be reborn, steals vaccines by taking over his father's job, and is killed. In the middle are interspersed with unforgettable love and unforgettable old love. It's so simple, no matter how you think about it, you can't play it. But when this movie came out, there was a feeling that people wanted to be immersed in it, it was so beautiful. The protagonist's prodigal strength is speechless and poetic. Both heroines are pure as water....

      [B+] The close-ups and jump cuts under the manipulation of the new wave are so mysterious and exciting, but only for the first thirty minutes. Under the "indiscriminate bombardment" of a large number of techniques of the same type, all the novel feelings gradually faded away, and only the encounter with the light and shadow magic on the bus is still fresh in my...

      The subtitles are bad and not smooth, but even if they are smooth, I probably don't like it. There are some shots that are beautiful and the style comes out, but the movie is not that interesting. Binoche, great...

      Like Karax's New Wave predecessors, the action of the sci-fi setting and ending in Bad Blood is merely a parody of melodrama, its real focus is the lover's babble that occupies most of the film, and the "motivated" pure action. Patriarchy in the imaginary sense: Mark represents his father (Godard, Truffaut) and other Parisian New Wave predecessors from the 1960s, why the New Wave and the avant-garde must fail, and why experimental cinema has become a tradition in France. An artificial "studio...

    Movie quotes

    • Anna: Life is splendid with him. He guides me so well. He requires of me very beautiful things, very rigorous. You know, he is self-taught. Yes, he has done it all. He looked at me with the eyes of an inventor, with the eyes of a researcher, like I was an invaluable discovery, as if I had the solution to something. Something secret and mysterious that is hidden deep inside him. Sometimes I get so close, so near, but more often I am light years away? Curious, isn't it? It's my life, this thing, this thing like an enigma. An enigma that glues us together, both of us accomplices together. Maybe our love will die if it is solved too early or maybe not at all.

    • Alex: I like the radio. You just turn it on, and you get the very tune that was humming inside your head... You'll see. It's magic.

    • Alex: You need to feed the eyes for your dreams.
