Nelly & Monsieur Arnaud - 1995 – 6/10 Nelly’s marriage is at an impasse. Her husband has not worked in a few years. Reads newspapers, magazines, complains of no recognition of his talent. Lunching with her sister, she is introduced to Mr Arnaud, retired and wealthy. And, he has been trying to write his memoirs … if he could only find a typist. Opening ten minutes provide the template for the entire film. Quiet character studies, layered conversations, small revelations. Fine acting, excellent dialogue. French buffs, certainly. Others? Possibly.
Burning - 2018 – 6/10 AKA – Beoning // 버닝 Slow burn mystery / thriller has been getting Hitchcock comparisons. Do not be misled. Hitchcock understood propulsive narration. This lags. Village youth works as courier in the city. He meets a girl from his village who asks if he could watch her cat while she goes on holiday. She returns with new friend, Ben, wealthy, bit of a decadent wastrel. Ben “adopts” her like a pet. When she disappears, he shrugs. The village boy, who nursed a crush for her, wonders. Suspects. Problem is, it is impossible to tell if his suspicions are well founded, or paranoia. Again, this is very slow going. A character study, more than a clue laden mystery.
