josé neves's rating of the film Les dames du Bois de Boulogne

Assign a higher value to Cocteau dialogues is the same as considering that the narrative is better than the director's idiosyncratic look, which if it wasn't Bresson could be more interesting than actually is. A fictional overload, not always the most subtle one, is rescued at the end by a sublime ascencional shot, literally: it is from God's point of view that the redemption of love becomes Grace.
