Plot Summary | Add Synopsis

Taglines:

A cleverly caustic, stylistic satire, in the tradition of Europe's politically penetrating writers and artists, this film deals with certain aspects of international intrigue and society. It is the true story of a certain "young lady" known simply as Rosemary to her many admirers. Shown at the Venice Film Festival under protest, it received the Italian Critic's Award.

Enjoyable because of the the camera techniques
6 February 2003 | by mosquistSee all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie a good deal. The thing that stood out to me the most was the interesting camera angles. There were many times when the camera focused on an object instead of the people who were speaking. There was also many other interesting camera techniques. These various camera angles added to the over feeling of the film. This film also had a very interesting plot, showing how powerful the powerful are. No one can get too close to them, or know too much. The movie was darkly funny. There were many funny moments and even more irony. The most ironic part was the movie ending right where it began. It came full circle, and showed how small and invisible the poor were compared to the rich. The movie kept a constant contrast between the rich and the poor. The movie was full of black male, threats and using people. Everyone was pinned against everyone esle. This made the movie very interesting to me, but at the same time there was an entire subplot that was never made clear.

There was secrets about the factory and a conflict between the French man and the English that was never made clear. This made the movie a bit hard to enjoy, because we never get to know what is actually happening. And then there is Rosemarie in the middle of it all, and by leaving out all the details it allows the movie to focus on her story, after all thats what this movie is about. Overall, the camera angles and irony made this movie enjoyable to me.
