The Mother & The Whore (1973)

This one was a weird one. Black and white - even though it's the seventies. Artsy. One review on IMDB introduces this as one of the last classics of the French New Wave, and many reviews praise it for it's simpleness, intimacy and lack of superfluous effects and angles, but I'd rather go with not as optimistic comment, suggesting it may as well be called the Overrated and Dull Sexual Adventures of a Pedantic Chauvinist. To me... it didn't feel all that impressive.

It's about Alexandre and his mate Marie, and another girl, in France. I follow along, and to some extent I'm intrigued, and entertained, but at the same time it all feels slow and pointless. In the end it doesn't lead anywhere, and though you might say that's also what makes it authentic, it also makes it feel like one of those stories I could've been without. The actors do their job, and the filming's not bad, but it wasn't all that special. Not all it's hyped up to be, though apparently enthusiasts of the genre would argue otherwise.

The story? It's about Alexandre and his mate Marie, and another girl - in France.
