    Ugh, a French art film that gives French art films a bad name, not to mention the reputation of Cannes Film Festival that awarded this turdy leaden exercise in Bressonianisms. Bresson's stark and spare images were underlined by spiritual depth, a sense of soulful interior far beneath the exterior of distractions and despair. But this slow, grubby, and pain-in-the-ass movie has Ugh, a French art film that gives French art films a bad name, not to mention the reputation of Cannes Film Festival that awarded this turdy leaden exercise in Bressonianisms. Bresson's stark and spare images were underlined by spiritual depth, a sense of soulful interior far beneath the exterior of distractions and despair. But this slow, grubby, and pain-in-the-ass movie has nothing beneath its heavy exterior coating of artsiness. Suffice it to say it's inhumane to let anyone sit thru L'humanite. Prospective masochist should be warned of its graphic sexual content, such as a long held shot of a woman's poon gurgling--or rather croaking like a frog--after sex. And you thought Todd Solodnz was heavyduty peddler of muckishness. Expand

    Dumont's movie has virtually nothing wrong with it -- aside from the fact that it drives people crazy. Take the leap, but expect no answers. Just like life, as they say.
  2. While Dumont's movie has its striking scenes, it is doomed to a sense of lethargy and inertia by the kind of people it ponders and the context in which they are placed.
  3. It ought to be seen, because it's a work of moral and spiritual mystery.
