The director tried to make full sense of the movie with its crappy story-telling skills, yet it didnt make any sense at the end of the movie.
However, the actors and actresses were really awesome. Wasted good actors in this movie.
Nina goes for Quentin. Quentin has Paulot grope Nina. Quentin dies. Nina cries. Scrutzler shows up and casts Nina in his production of Romeo & Juliet. Nina struggles. Nina and Paulot FINALLY do the deed, and it is one of the most revolting sex scenes, ever. Scutzler leaves for England on the opening night of his play, leaving a bewildered Nina behind. End. This supposedly takes place over several years, though the pacing is such that it feels closer to two or three days. Also, Nina never changes clothes.
There is no feeling in this movie. It's eighty-eight minutes of flummoxing encounters and cringeworthy sex scenes and more issues than you can shake a stick at. There is no desperation. There is no love. There is no sexual tension (maybe because there is no buildup!). The only thing I can commend are the performances of Jean-Louis Trinignant and Juliette Binoche. 1 1/2 stars.
I just enjoyed the part that Nina was not understanding Romeo and Juliette and was questioning their love ... and I am wondering what happened to Paulo's love? Does love vanish as soon as you reach it?
