La bouche de Jean-Pierre

Lucile Hadzihalilovic

Mimi is abused. The film-maker's scope lens takes sides against her aunt and certainly against the latter's boyfriend.

Excellent scope-camerawork and a great soundtrack characterise this lugubrious and slightly tasteless look at life in a stuffy apartment. After her mother has tried suicide, the young Mimi moves in temporarily with her Aunt Solange. There is also Solange's fiancé Jean-Pierre, who feels attracted to her.
