      "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 Because of his withdrawn nature, he can only notice those bubble-like details, which is a blessing from God.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....

      The love wrapped in criminal behavior, perseverance, persistence, bitterness, pain, and sadness, Alex interprets the loneliness and rebelliousness of young people. A tragic story, hope never dies; grim reality, love never dies. The genre frame of the film is a pretense of nothingness, and it is also the consistent shooting method of the "post-new wave". Photography, composition and editing create a dreamlike silhouette, gloomy and sharp tones, sad music and actors' expressions of youth....

      It's very personal and feels more like another rendition of Boy Meets Girl. Alex is still struggling to find love, but what he gets is a bitter fruit that he needs to swallow. Whether it is really realized or not, it is always wonderful to have such a gift that condenses the most wonderful youth of Binoche, Rawang, Delby, and the youthful frivolity that Karax never returns. I love those bright, passionate colors in this...

      It can only be said that under the romantic lens, the two heroines are both young and beautiful, with no dead ends in 360°, which fully reflects the love of men for them in their youth. This is a theft movie packed with love. The main line of the story is very It's simple and straightforward, it's just a group of people going to steal the newly developed virus, but it's more about love and life insights. It's a literary film with a strong French romanticism, and the film is also mixed with a...

    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.
