La Daronne ***

 La Daronne ***

The book is much better than the movie due to the form, we could have a much more detailed understanding of the background of the stories.

The book is written by someone who truly worked in the police service, she explained the turmoil of working at such a job.

In the movie, Isabelle Huppert who plays the haggered interpreter is too cool.  Her expressions are that of a down graded life style of a white bourgeoise woman.  Things are oh, no problem.  No tension in her face.  Like the cool woman who is playing at big time dealing.  

Good actrice, but no sweat acting.

All the rich details of Asian population in a large building, the holdups at Asian weddings etc its all there, just a swift mention and the story moves onto the next step.

I liked it, as a catalogue of scenes.

The movie if treated with less entertainment oriented goals who have done the story justice.

But the author of the book also has written it as a polar - as a whodunnit book.

Its not about turmoil of anybody, its about entertainment.

Les Apparences 2019 ***

 Les Apparences  dir Marc Fitoussi ***  2019


Movie with Karin Viard, a show case of what priviledged class people do, they gossip, sleep in nice pj outfits, could throw on a coat and go across the street for a glass of wine with nothing in their pocket so they sign for the drink.

The wife, a library head, wife of a famous conductor, both French expats in Vienna, found out hes got a lover in the person of their childs teacher!  This fling involves the teacher had some kind of lawsuit for having murdered her child.  The librarian goes across the street to have a drink and attracts a nice looking yg man; so they spent the night together at a hotel.  He has hole in his socks and electronic bracelet at his ankle (but we dont know if she saw that) they didnt make love or anything.  But the yg man is stalking her afterwards.

The wife finds out who the lover of the husband is, sends out massive damaging email to try to get rid of the teacher, but unsuccessful.

The stalker gets the librarian to go to a remote riverside restaurant, and they had a fight.  The husband was trailing the wife comes to the rescue and accidentally they killed the yg man together.

So lawsuit, gossip, no friends, everybody fled from this scandalous couple.

When the case is cleared, the husband announces that he went to a lover solution because hes bored of his very proper appearance perfect wife.  Now that they are both out of the scandal and he is still at the starting point, boring life!  So he proposed that they begin new again - each one their own way - and then she had this primal screamed which is like the summation of the whole movie, and they split.  

And then she feels free, free of her burden of keeping up appearances.

End of story.

Well, fancy coating of chic environment, but quick paced.  Thats all.  Good actress but not more than that.


I just dont believe that you could kill somebody , thats just a simple stalker - no real commitment from the wife, why would the husband be so upset?

The teacher lover, we dont know what her charms are, its not shown in the movie, I cannot believe that she could lure any man just like that.

The wife, wife shows no interior life, just all on the surface, she could have been a simple bourgeois woman, no sign of interior feelings.  Just jealousy.  Not sympathetic.

The man, such eyes, why would you want to be w a man like that?  

Maybe a polar film is just that, a polar, move the story along finished.

We just want to know what happened and how it ends.

CBC Literary Prizes Gibson by Brenda Damen

 https://www.cbc.ca/books/literaryprizes/gibson-by-brenda-damen-1.5522971


Just read the winning story from last year. I like the setting the overall care to set up the scenario - the mountain, wilderness, snow, nature. All this is v vivid. Too bad the sound track is kind of v low-fi. I tried to listen to the audio 3 times, impossible. Reading the printed text reveals the story. Audio does not do justice to the printed story.
