Despite the fact that she made the move to invite the blondie. But after seeing it it made perfect sense for example it had bad acting, bad jokes and the actors felt like they were reading their lines from a piece of paper that they were holding during production plus David O. Obviously, he doesn't find her - which doesn't preclude his opium- induced dreams of her to interrupt all the time. It is full of beautiful and weird dialogues and extremely emotional, 'free-played' graphic scenes. For the rest of this day, he recalls his past two years with Electra in a series of fragmented, nonlinear flashbacks; how they first met in Paris, their quick hookup, and their lives over the next two years which is filled with drug abuse, rough sex and tender moments. Love is not only a missed opportunity, it's a film I'll never remember, or want to remember.
Why did good actors such as James Marsden, Jessica Biel and Jake Gyllenhaal star in it? Let's just say that it should have stayed forgotten as it was. This unplanned pregnancy ended the relationship between Murphy and Electra on a horrible note, and it forced Murphy to marry Omi. And the movie ends with him and original girl embraced under the shower professing endless love and protection. Gaspar Noe does a masterful job in showing us the true emotional aspect of love, in it's raw and relatable form, sex. A small town waitress gets a nail accidentally lodged in her head causing unpredictable behavior that leads her to Washington, D. The movie abruptly switches between various stages of Murphy's and Electra's relationship, always cutting back to the present, where Murphy's is in absolute emotional agony and despair, raising a child with Clara. Then this monster gets the pretty blonde underage neighbour girl pregnant.
. There she falls for a dashing, but clueless, Congressman who searches for the courage to save her. Gaspar Noe constantly cuts through the past and the future, using the techniques he is so familiar with since Irreversible. In the meanwhile, blondie leaves with the boy, telling him to finish his past so they could have a future. She stands by him in another stereotypical situation.
Did I mention that it is partly filmed backwards, as 'Irreversible' was? His favorite movie is Kubrick's '2001', while hers is Lang's 'M', both of which seem to fuel Murphy and Electra's behavior throughout the movie, where Murphy is often aimlessly overwhelmed with hope and desire, while Electra seems unable to forgive. This results in her attracting the attentions of Trooper Scott James Marsden who is ready to propose after only a few months. Murphy is an American cinema school student, living in Paris. Not since the early 70's has pornographic films experimented telling actual stories instead of just getting straight to business. At times Murphy and Electra are so deeply engrained in one another that their fights and dialogues seem outright comical and immature, as if we are observing a 16 year- old couple. Then he spends a full day calling people to try and find her. Russell has made way better films like Three Kings, Joy, American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook but this? In one morning, Electra's mother, Nora, phones him to ask if he's heard from Electra, because she hasn't heard from her for three months, and given her daughter's suicidal tendencies.
By the way, they used a very similar setting - an underground passage - in one of the sequences. In the words of Murphy, Gaspar Noe might have made the only movie that truly depicts 'sentimental sexuality'. There is a very awkward scene with him and the child in the bathtub, after blondie's face tells us she will leave him. But, alas, when Scotty takes Alice to the posh Gondola Restaurant in their small Indiana town, their dinner is interrupted by a construction worker with a nail gun near their table. However, I despised the black screen that would appear every time there was a cut. And how in the hell did it took so many years to be released? I didn't feel for anyone in this film.
Really good in all scenes, conveys mood and context. It is an extremely sad and emotional scene, where the thought itself brings so much fear into them, that they simply end up holding each other even tighter. He had a French girlfriend, called Electra, whom he dated for two years. Woe to her when she upsets a tray on a customer, in anger, and loses her job. What's more, the nail is rubbing Alice's emotional brain spots and she can get angry and sex-crazed easily. Unaware of the seismic effect it will have on their relationship, they invite their pretty neighbor into their bed. It will be no accident if you end up cheering for Alice and company! Gaspar's mother is named Nora Murphy, while Murphy's son is named Gaspar and Electra's ex boyfriend - Noe.
Then she goes down into a spiral of drugs and alcohol, shutting him off her life completely. The script for 'Love' is only 7 pages long. The cinematography is the only standout. Nymphomaniac is the last film of the modern era that attempted this, and it absolutely blew me away. But this is truly where 'Love' stands out. He keeps the blondie, they have a little boy that he names after the child he and the lost love dreamt to have together - stereotype, anyone? He tries to bully a police officer inside a police station. As if to say that when in love, everything should be seen through the eyes of the lovers.
She works as a carhop waitress on skates and she glides beautifully. If there's a profound reason for those two editing decisions, I'd like to know. We are presented with a stereotypical immature, selfish, arrogant, possessive young male studying cinema in Paris - apparently only to get stoned and laid. Synopsis Murphy is an American cinema school student, living in Paris. Unfortunately, Alice has no insurance, Scott gets cold feet and neither her parents or vet friend Kirstie Alley can help. The story line and dialogue sucks.
