Eclipse 1977: Le Couple Témoin

Oh, so this is a pre-reality TV reality TV parody/satire.

Now it’s more a… “biting satire of consumer culture” or whatever they used to call that stuff.

I mean, it’s funny.

And I love the colours.

But it’s just not that interesting? Perhaps it was ahead of its time and fantastic back then etc, but it feels pretty aimless.

I don’t think this movie quite works. I like a lot of the individual scenes and performances, but it gets bogged down.

The Polly Magoo movie was so brilliant… perhaps my expectations are just too high?

The Model Couple. William Klein. 1977.
