The most unbearable movie ever: "Une Chambre En Ville".
Usually, I watch Jacques Demy movies (including "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg") on mute. But that is if I have seen them before. I had never before seen this 1982 film set during worker's strikes in Nantes. So for a tortuous 1 hour and 35 minutes that I will never get back, my eyes feasted while my ears suffered. Like other Demy films, the sets, costumes and actors were gorgeous. The music and non-stop singing? Not so much . . .
1.) I am totally going to direct Chrissy Lux sing in a high-pitched, breathy off-tune voice for his role of Jenna in my movie
2.) Danielle Darrieux is a better version of a mother than Anne Vernon (the mother in Umbrellas.)
3.) There aren't enough roles that call for a flasher in a fur coat.
