soulless
13 December 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Too easy to critic it. In essence, only a sketch. And a hommage in its last scenes. Result of noble, good intentions. With a predictable mediocre solution. Because, I though, Le Grand Meaulnes is one of novels who escapes from reasonable adaptations. In this case, the basic sin is the absence of magic aura. The too easy solutions. The performances- not the most convincing because it seems enough the presence of Nicholas Duvauchelle - a sort of James Dean - and Clemence Poesy. But the great error is the absence of coherence. It seems a puzzle with improvised pieces. And the emotion is lost. Maybe, in this case, the words are alive against images who are almost neutral. The good points - Jean - Pierre Marielle as Monsieur de Galais and the locations. And, sure, maybe Jean Baptiste Maunier. For the memories about Les Choristes.
