Les Amants du Pont-Neuf
Movie: Les Amants du Pont-Neuf(1992)[tt0101318] Set against Paris' oldest bridge, the Pont Neuf, while it was closed for repairs, this film is a love story between two young vagrants: Alex, a would be circus performer addicted to alcohol and sedatives and Michele, a painter driven to a life on the streets because of a failed relationship and an affliction which is slowly turning her blind. The film portrays the harsh existence of the homeless as Alex, Michele and Hans, an older vagrant survive on the streets with their wits. As they both slowly get their lives back together, Michele becomes increasingly dependent on Alex as her vision deteriorates further. Fearing that Michele will leave him if she receives a new medical treatment Alex attempts to keep Michele practically a prisoner. The streets, skies and waterways of Paris are used as a backdrop to the story in a series of stunning visuals which dominate the film. Written byAnonymous

I've just watched this film and, out of curiosity, the comments of several contributors to this bulletin board. Simply can't fathom the glowing enthusiasm of most of these - though I suppose they are self-selected from those who have actually been able to sit through it.To me it seemed phony, pretentious, and in the end unbelievably boring - both words here seem applicable alone as well as in tandem. I'm rather fond of Binoche, and this may have something to do with my impression that she found the role one that couldn't be played convincingly - that she as a result could only stumble through it sans conviction. Why did I then watch it through? In the hope of some saving grace - which I certainly failed to find in that silly resolution.
