Une Femme Douce review Bresson’s transcendent reflection on marriage

The French directors 1969 spectacle about the wife of a pawnbroker who kills herself is still difficult, devastating and captivating 50 years on Rfilm of the same name by Sergei Loznitsa in 2017). It was his first colour film, and the colours themselves appear muted and darkened, as if from a neglected church tapestry. Dominique Sanda plays Elle, the delicate young wife of a pawnbroker (that ominous Dostoevskian trope) who takes her own life by jumping from the balcony of their handsome Paris apartment, leaving no suicide note or explanation.

Things picked up steam when Lady Gaga broke off her engagement with Christian Carino in February, and we all remember the Oscars, when they were practically oozing horniness for each other. I really got my hopes up when Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk officially broke up earlier this summer, but it seems like it’s just not meant to be. Lady Gaga’s been spotted with a new man, and it ain’t Bradley Cooper. On Sunday, Lady Gaga was seen at brunch in LA with Dan Horton, an audio engineer who has worked with Gaga, in addition to other top names …
