CÅ“urs (2006)

Movie still
CÅ“urs (2006), directed by the legendary Alain Resnais.

I had high hopes for this film but it turned out to be a huge disappointment. It’s based on a stage play that to me, just doesn’t work. I knew within the first five minutes that I wasn’t going to enjoy this film.

Parts of it were almost funny—the type of funny where women in their 70s chuckle apprehensively and 3 people (out of 1,300 in the Elgin Theatre) laugh hysterically at everything.

The best thing about CÅ“urs was the performance by Lambert Wilson. He was the villain with the fabulous French accent in The Matrix Reloaded (2003).

Okay, I’ve got nothin’. Sorry Monsieur Resnais but your movie blows.*½
