Blinded by the light
17 September 2007 | by richard_sleboeSee all my reviews

With every movie that he makes, Jacques Dutronc emerges ever more clearly as a Gallic Bryan Ferry. The accomplished singer-composer and César-winning actor moves through this movie with the weatherbeaten grace of a retired crook who has seen it all. A self-confined prisoner of his minimalistic sea-side mansion, he watches helplessly as his spoiled kids repeat the mistakes of the past in a classy peepshow of bodies and souls. With "UV", you get three movies at the price of one. It is a thriller embedded in a family drama with the visual appeal of a poolside cocktail commercial. Those of you who don't turn a blind eye on female allure will be pleased to find the girls (Laura Smet, Anne Caillon) tanning topless on-screen where they are wearing bikini tops in the production stills. Cinematographer Diego Martínez Vignatti makes ample use of overexposure, creating a glimmering visual equivalent of the Mediterranean mid-summer heat.
