De la guerre

Bertrand Bonello France, 2008

Nicole's rating of the film On War

Amalric is something else in this one, playing Bonello's alter-ego it seems. If a film starts out with a Bob Dylan quote it better be at the very least pretty good. This one had Amalric having a staring contest with a wild animal, dance scene in a beautiful forest BEFORE The Lobster existed, Lea Seydoux playing a calm yet horny cult member, references to Cronenberg, chapters that go by books. Overall, pretty good.
