Le Roman D'Un Tricheur
The Story of a Cheat
Oh my god, what a snore. This film is one of those artsy, boring, French films that pretentious people praise for its "rawness".
This movie is acted out like it is silent, but there is a constant narration in the background. It also starts out introducing the cast and crew like some sort of eighties sitcom. This film follows the life of a boy who discovers that cheating can actually be quite fruitful. It is one of those "am I supposed to be laughing right now?" type films. When done correctly, these kind of movies can be really fun but this movie botched that technique. There was also a really long scene talking about Monaco, towns, and cities which felt like one of those cultural videos I had to watch in high school French classes.
As boring as Magnolia. You get the picture...
Credits were spoken and not written.
Too obscure for much trivia. Sorry!!
