La belle endormie

Catherine Breillat France, 2010

fleur de chair's rating of the film The Sleeping Beauty

Ugh, this had so much potential. I can put up with a lot of things in the name of an otherwise compelling movie, including "boring" stretches and lack of organisation. But I can't figure out what this film is trying to say. And, no, I don't think that's "the point." This seems strange coming from a director whose point of view is so strong in her best films that it smacks you in the face.
