A good movie

At last, after 10 long years, Paul Verhoeven finally came up with a new directing effort and I was really eager to check it out . Eventually, I'm not sure if the other members of my film club really liked it but I thought it was another strong thriller from the Dutch master. Obviously, the critics won't miss the fact that it was rather misogynist as the women seem to almost enjoy to be brutalized ... read more

There´s a peculiar she and a generic she (la somme de toutes les vulnerabilités d'une femme avec pouvoir) in this ambitious thriller. Huppert is convincing because she is a bit 'elle'.

The thorniest, iciest character study I’ve seen in quite some time, and that isn’t a criticism. Elle is provocative material played with intelligence and chilling lack of emotional pity or yearning for sympathy. Talking about it feels like trying to navigate a minefield.   Isabelle Huppert’s Michèle Leblanc is a woman who refuses to be defined by the men in her life, or the tragedies an... read more

Michèle seems indestructible. Head of a successful video game company, she brings the same ruthless attitude to her love life as to business. Being attacked in her home by an unknown assailant changes Michèle's life forever. When she resolutely tracks the man down, they are both drawn into a curious and thrilling game-a game that may, at any moment, spiral out of control.

"16.10. Elle käsittelee nokkelasti ihmisen seksuaalisuutta, ja miten tiettyjä mieltymyksiä ei välttämättä itsekään tiedosta. Ihmisen toiminta tuntuu loppujen lopuksi olevan vahvasti oman seksuaaliviettien ohjaamaa. Syvälle uppoavan hahmodynamiikan avulla Verhoeven herättää pohdintaa ihmisen moraalikäsityksestä koskien parisuhdetta - itsensä toteuttaminen ja toisaalta parisuhde toisen ihmisen kanssa aiheuttaa välttämättä ristiriitoja. Elokuva herättää kieltämättä monia a"

"27.6. Blu-ray Mielettömän vahva ja häiritsevä. Verhoeven puhuttelee vaihteeksi provokaation avulla ja tekee sen yhä selvästi itsensä näköisesti ja täysin piittamatta, miten tämäkin otetaan vastaan. Kokemus on vahvimmillaan ilman ennakkotietoja elokuvasta. Huppert on uskomaton."

"23.9. (Kirjasto/BD) Pitkästä aikaa tuli katsottua Verhoevenia. Voi pojat! Se oli mukavaa. Kommenttien taso on tätä ja päivä päivältä minusta tuntuu, että tämä on listalin ja minun viimeinen vuosi yhdessä. Elle sen sijaa (toistan tätä, koska en muuta keksi) on loistava leffa, josta näkee Verhoevenin edelleen tekevän hommat tyylillään. Kaikkia se ei miellytä ja moneen otteeseen herra on saanut tuon vuoksi vaihtaa maisemaa. Olen muuten tavannut Paulin."

"8.9. Paul Verhoevenin uusinta elokuvaa on haukuttu naisvihamieliseksi siksi, että siinä raiskattava nainen ei käyttäydy uhriutuvasti, joten ilmeisesti se tarkoittaa elokuvan olevan vain ohjaajansa raiskausfantasia. Ellessä kuitenkin on kyse nimenomaan katsojan vaivaannuttamisesta sillä, että sen hahmot eivät käyttäydy niin kuin elokuvissa (ja elokuvien vuoksi tosielämässä) kuvitellaan hahmojen käyttäytyvän. Omat päätökset mallin mukaan toimimisen sijaan ovatkin vieraannutta"
