Although Jeanne's past is never explained, one gets the sense of a life of quiet desperation. Jeanne seems to be happy on the surface, but dig a little deeper and one finds a woman whose passion for life has fizzled out. She goes through the motions, living each day as she is expected--dutiful wife to David, loving mother to young Louis--until she meets Marie. Intrigued by the vitality of this woman, Jeanne undergoes a transformation that, at first, she finds confusing and frightening. Marie makes no secret of her attraction to women--and to Jeanne--and Jeanne, while drawn to her, struggles with conflicting emotions, eventually running back home to the safety of the known.
The distance between Jeanne and her husband continues to grow, and Jeanne finds herself thinking of Marie more and more; the quiet desperation invading her every waking moment. She again finds herself at Marie's class, this time taking her up on an offer for dinner. They go to Marie's apartment where she begins to prepare dinner for the two, when Jeanne boldly decides to ask Marie to kiss her. The tender kiss in turn leads to a night of lovemaking between the two. They continue having clandestine rendezvous for several weeks, and one can see the joy growing in Jeanne's life at her newfound feelings.
It's only a matter of time before Jeanne finds herself in love with Marie, torn between the life she had and the one she is creating with Marie. The ensuing drama that occurs between Jeanne and David as she takes steps that will radically change her life, are intense and passionate. During the next few scenes, we see an entirely different Jeanne as she makes up her mind, finds herself, and makes decisions that will change her life forever.
"Amour de Femme" stars Helene Fillieres as Jeanne. At first, I thought the actress portraying Marie was very short, but further investigation revealed that Fillieres is actually six-feet tall! She reminds me of a young Gia Carangi in many shots, having that androgynous beauty about her. Fillieres, as Jeanne, is a formidable screen presence: her stormy beauty simultaneously suggesting the terror with which she at first cowers from love's promise, then lunges at it hungrily, epitomizing Jeanne's greatest question in life: who is this woman that I am becoming?
Raffaela Anderson portrayal of Marie is the very picture of courageous self-determination, whether romancing Jeanne in quiet conversation, or wildly dancing with a commanding ferocity.
I found "Amour de Femme" to be highly reminiscent of another favorite movie of mine, "When Night is Falling." Both of these movies tend toward subtlety and imagery to tell their stories instead of hand-holding the viewer with endless dialogue and background explanations. If you like your movies spelled out in great detail, you probably won't like "Amour de Femme" or "When Night is Falling." "Amour de Femme" is the kind of movie that you think about, watch again, and enjoy even more the second time around as you capture the nuance of the wonderful performance.
One thing to remember when watching this film is that it is a foreign film and not necessarily up to Hollywood cinematic standards. The musical soundtrack leaves quite a bit to be desired, bordering on tastelessly pornographic, and the coloring of the movie tends toward dark and moody.
Nevertheless, if you can get past the technical inadequacies of the film, you will find yourself immersed in a beautiful, moving love story about the "love of women." "Amour de Femme" is a movie to be remembered.
This movie deals with a married woman (with a son), Jeanne (Fillieres) whose life is pretty much boring and uneventful. She meets Marie (Anderson), a dancer who finds Jeanne attractive. Jeanne wants to return to dancing, and her husband, David (Delon) approves. However, David is always away on business trips. Jeanne and Marie decide to take a trip to Normandy to see Marie's brother. They begin an illicit affair which is found out by David. He forces his wife to decide between him and Marie. She breaks up from Marie. Who will Jeanne decide between? Well, that's all I will reveal about the plot.
As I watched this 2001 film, I looked like a low-budget 70s feature. The yellows in the scenes, along with the graininess of the stock, made the movie look and feel old, and the narrative certainly enhanced that "outdated" feel. There is no originality to the movie's narrative: Bored housewife finds husband distant, finds another who shows some interest, and commits adultery. Husband finds out, wife separates from lover, but who will she choose between? Just so it has a lesbian relationship, should the viewer love the movie even more? I do not believe so. Its run-of-the-mill shaky-marriage story is flat. Even though I really enjoy Anderson's acting ability, everyone seems to be in a perpetual state of brooding. The lesbian relationship in itself feels realistic, but the low-budget feel kills that reality rather quickly.
I tried to like this movie, but was disappointed at its lack of imagination. I am really unsure why it is beloved by so many reviewers on Amazon, but I cannot give the movie such accolades. Even now, 12 years later, it feels like 70s-80s cinema than 2001.
3 of 5 Amazon stars. Try "Four Minutes"! It's great!
There's not much in the way of sex scenes (or even nudity) in this film, but what's there is very well done and very erotically charged. The casting and production values are all excellent, but if you're looking for explicit sexual encounters involving women-with-women you'll be disappointed.
I liked this one, but I'd probably have enjoyed an NC-17 version of this film even more.
