    The trailer they are using for this is really bad.

    It was framed like a thriller. It really didn't capture the tone of the movie at all, but typical foreign arthouse trailers probably aren't great for wide releases.

    This somehow lived up to every bit of the hype. Might fuck around and watch it again tomorrow.

    Decided to check out some of her early work to tide me over until I can see this again. I am undecided about Tomboy (really great emotions and beautiful relationships conveyed but maybe a little too slow / static) but i loved Water Lilies.

    I saw Water Lilies very early in my film exploration. I loved it at the time, but I don't remember much of it. Girlhood was great.

    I feel bad for saying this, but this wasn't really my thing. Cinematography was stunning tho. Kind of a bummer because so many people whose opinion's I respect love it.

    How sad is this? Dying to see it but can’t handle anything too emotionally devastating at the moment.

    A little sad, but I think it is so beautiful that it mostly made me feel warm inside.

    Their love is obviously star crossed but the relationship is beautiful and really a joy to watch

    Adele Haenel walked out of the Cesars after Roman Polanski won best director. Fuck yeah.

    Apparently Noémie and Céline did as well.

    I thought it was pretty heartbreaking. But maybe in a cathartic way?

    How did I only just hear about this movie until like 10 minutes ago? This looks absolutely right up my alley

    did Sophie have an immaculate conception lol, also I wonder if those old wives tales were real
    I was wondering how the paintings were so beautiful but she had a professional painter do them
    it was cool how, probably ahistorically, class wasn't as big a deal as I think it would be, like they were friends with Sophie
    I couldn't get over the fact that Heloise was basically Belle, she was trapped in a big ass house and by the patriarchy and she loved reading and singing
    I also understand that Marianne has to be a bit of a cypher because her role is the observer
    also the flex of Celine and Adele breaking up before filming is next level

    So to clarify a bit it’s significant that they are friendly with Sophie BECAUSE the mother (agent of patriarchy) and men are absent. The reason female separatism is such a huge tenet of radical feminism is because of the belief that a society for and by women would not necessarily have such divisions because that power structure is created by men to benefit men.

    Gah this movie was so beautiful and had me just going “...women!” A la Jo March the whole time.

    This was absolutely sublime. Is there a link somewhere that summarizes the meaning of the Eurydice story? And how the idea of her asking him to turn around changes things?

    Girlhood, Water Lillies, and Tomboy are all on the Criterion Channel just so you all know

    Also, can someone explain the different things they were doing with Sophie, in regards to her pregnancy? That older woman, what did she do to her/what for?
