(fr) wrote: "The Man Who Loved Women" is an engaging, easy-to-watch story, but if you're a film buff looking for bold hallmarks of the French New Wave, you won't find much. Really, the only deviant touch is one self-reflexive scene in which some book publishers discuss the autobiography which the protagonist has submitted. It's as if the film's script is already being critiqued within itself. Otherwise, the plot structure involves flashback and is somewhat episodic, but this is simply the best way to tell the tale rather than an aggressive "challenge" to the viewer. So, your best bet is to take off your scholar's robes and just *enjoy* this gentle, bittersweet fable of an unlikely, not-so-dashing womanizer who wins all hearts through sheer sincerity and persistence. One advisory: There is not nearly as much titillation as one might expect, given the subject matter.

But it does have a pretty unique and interesting concept behind it that often gets over looked: what if something bad happens to you, you take a brutal revenge, but the person you direct your furry at may not be the person who wronged you? And because of the violent rape scene this aspect is almost always overlooked now a days. And that is a shame, because the base idea itself is an interesting one and is worth a much more in-depth look at, maybe in a different movie.

(kr) wrote: Good soundtrack, good sets, Arnold puts in a pretty good performance in this movie that floats somewhere in the middle of Arnold-action and Arnold-comedy. It has some elements of UHF, Kentucky-Fried movie with the bits of films-within-a-film that appear early on. That's why the parody of Hamlet works so well, being that it, too, contains a play within a play. Being that a large chunk of the film is a film within a film, I guess it shatters the 8th wall, without shattering the 4th wall which is what makes it work for me. Then again, they mention Arnold Schwarzenegger as a character in the film, an actor who plays the role of Jack Slater, so that adds another element of self-reference that I don't think counts as a direct breach of the 4th wall. Either way, it's a fun movie a little heavy on the cheesy side, but not a bad playfully self-depreciating examination of the action film. At the end of the day, it's nowhere near as good as True Lies which was kind of a parody of itself and the genre without the explicit self-reference.
(kr) wrote: A truly incredible movie! I watched it 4 times in 3 weeks. It's fun, but it's also much deeper than that. All of the characters are played to perfection by actors that have built a chemistry that is clearly evident. It made me miss that first weekend before university started, but also reminded me that it's okay to still not quite know where my niche in life is. I have suggested that all of my friends check this out and I'll keep telling them to do so until they watch it!
