About Pauline asservie (Pauline enslaved)

by Léo Soesanto

Am I in love? Yes, since I’m waiting: the filmmaker Charline Bourgeois-Tacquet breathes new life into Roland Barthes’ essential quote from A Lover’s Discourse : Fragments, in the light of 4G Internet connection and “ghosting”, as she tells Pauline’s excruciating wait for news from her lover. Anaïs Demoustier and Sigrid Bouaziz make an explosive duo for this screwball comedy where lines are fired at light speed with wonderful energy and humour and where The Princess of Cleves and a text message are both as deep and as complex.
