review of The Names of Love
on August 31, 2012
This film is about a beautiful young woman and a slightly older man. The woman is a leftist who seduces conservative men and convinces them to become leftists. She thinks the older man is a conservative, but he just dresses conservatively--he and his parents have been leftists/communists since World War II.
The girl is a bit absent minded. One really funny scene is when she goes home to take a shower, but gets so distracted by multiple phone calls, that she leaves and rides the metro without remembering to get dressed again.
Another funny scene requires a bit of knowledge about how the French vote. At French elections, the voter is given slips of paper, each paper with a candidate's name on it. To vote for a candidate, the voter puts the slip with the candidate's name on it in the voting machine. The scene also requires the audience to know that Nicolas Sarkosy (the recent French president) is a conservative. With this background, you can probably figure out the scene.
I highly recommend this movie.
