WFC Luxembourg: Elles

This isn’t a very Luxembourgian (that a word) film. It’s a Belgian/French/Luxembourgassian/Portuguese/Spanish/Swiss coproduction, but it was stil lthe Luxembourg submission for the Oscars that year.

That it’s a European copro-duction is usually not a good sign: You often get a neutered lowest common demoninator sausage from that factory, but I kinda had hopes for this film anyway. It’s a very attractive cast. But it’s pretty much exactly what I was all ascared of: Incomprehensively awful dialogue, wince-worthy plot lines, pedestrian cinematography and a grainy, bland film transfer to DVD.

The cast is pretty good, though; especially the five titular Women. If only they had a film to act in.

I liked the end of the party scene.

Two more films to go in this blog series, but they’re still stuck in the mail. That is, Borderlinx is sitting on them, unable to find my packages, so I’ll guess I’ll just have to re-buy the last two films.

Women. Luís Galvão Teles. 1997. Luxembourg.
