Saigon by Herself

11 years, 9 months ago at Nov 1 15:30

Whether the luxury and dissipation in the life at colony, or the inebriation of exotic amour boucing in the vernal breeze, even the nightmare of warfare which lingers on and on, Saigon is still as herself as ever.With the tumult accompanied by the dense moisture, it's a cradle gave birth to love and wish, sheding the departure and grief which all became a metropolis full of recollections.... read more

A good movie

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this movie and maybe I should re-watch it at some point.  First of all, the fact that I have not read the book probably allowed me to enjoy this movie more than it might deserve but I always had a weak spot for the damned thing and I believe it is one fo the best erotic thrillers out there. Sure, the story was rather generic and predictable and,... read more

It is French Colonial Vietnam in 1929. A young French girl from a family that is having some monetary difficulties is returning to boarding school. She is alone on public transportation when she catches the eye of a wealthy Chinese businessman. He offers her a ride into town in the back of his chauffeured sedan, and sparks fly. Can the torrid affair that ensues between them overcome the class restrictions and social mores of that time? Based on the semi-autobiographical novel by Marguerite Duras

my half assed 2018 movie diary (40 movies items)

" So idk how much of a valid complaint this is but: too much fucking SRS I'm comparing the film to the book here. Marguerite Duras' novel is a beautiful subdued tale of a tragic love that maybe was not even reciprocal, a deeply obsessive and destructive possibly one sided romance between two sad lonely people. The movie captures some of that haunting essence, but the abundance of sexual exposition degrades it to a baser level. Yes, the sensuality between the the girl and her lover is a huge"

“To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this movie and maybe I should re-watch it at some point.  First of all, the fact that I have not read the book probably allowed me to enjoy this movie more than it might deserve but I always had a weak spot for the damned thing and I believe it is one fo the best erotic thrillers out there. Sure, the story was rather generic and predictable and, at the end of the day, I don’t think that the characters were well developed. Eventually, it doesn’t really matter since the whole thing was more about the mood and, as a result, I thought it was quite spellbinding to be behold. Concerning the lovely Jane March, you might wonder if a movie like this one was the best way to start her career at about 18 years old. Eventually, even though she se” read more
