She then decides to seek love objects on her own. These sexual encounters show all her frustrations. Somewhat degrading her life?
Her conclusion telling us the viewers: Romance is short. Love is long.
The plot involves the retaliation of a pretty young woman against her boyfriend. For whatever reason, he has lost all sexual interest in her and is abruptly cruel while openly flirting with other women. She observes this in a heartbroken way, continually trying to seduce him - all graphically acted out - and yet she cannot bring herself to leave him. This is odd because there is absolutely nothing interesting about him (or her for that matter), there is no emotion or warmth on display from either of them, and the passion if it ever existed is long dead. So instead of leaving him, she decides to get even by seeking a series of ever more degrading sexual encounters. It is horribly explicit, strange, and empty.
This is not pornography because it is not meant to titillate. The girl is sullen and blank in every one of the situations, never showing the slightest pleasure or interest in her partners. Indeed, the only pleasure she shows is a fit of despairing auto-satisfaction, all the time describing to herself what she is feeling in a detached and idiotic voice, without real insight. Another artful twist is the long, unexplained sequences, when the viewer must guess what is happening. They don't always make sense and are not tied off as you would expect in a hollywood film; this creates gaps that the viewer must fill in, must work to interpret. That too is a trait of many good French films. The funeral ending, for example, must be placed into the context of the film; it is not an obvious denouement.
I enjoyed this on re-viewing, even if it is sad and cruel. It is deep psychodrama with many layers. Recommended.
