April 06, I saw Betty Blue original French title 37,2 Le Matin for the first time in shortly after having read the book and it remains one of my favourite films to this day. Although there are many obvious reasons why a sixteen year old boy might like it, I think it does stand up to scrutiny beyond the sex and nudity. This post is a brief explanation of some of the obvious and not-so-obvious reasons why this is a film to be loved and cherished.

To talk to him is to like him a lot. At the moment, though, charm is difficult, to put it mildly. He is discussing a fact which clearly galls him -- that his erotic and deceptively carnal adaptation of Margaret Duras' autobiographical memoir "The Lover" has fallen into an ancient hole of movie mythology and hype, the one that contends that his two principal actors, Jane March and Tony Leung, actually made love during the film's undeniably steamy scenes. Annaud's film is an artfully rendered adaptation of Duras' international best-selling memoir of a teen-age affair she had in Indochina with an older Chinese man. All sorts of films come with such fleshly myths -- director Roger Vadim discreetly leaving the set during the filming of "And God Created Woman" so that his then-wife, Brigitte Bardot, and Jean-Louis Trintingiant could consummate their affections; Bruce Dern telling everyone who'd listen that his love scenes with model Maud Adams during "Tattoo" were the real thing; the publicity campaign for "Wild Orchid," which "hinted" with a sledgehammer that what happened between Mickey Rourke and future wife Carre Otis was real; the widespread belief that the opening scene between Beatrice Dalle and Jean-Hugues Anglade in "Betty Blue" wasn't playacting. It's a mythology composed partly of middle-class hopes that moviemaking is a far more passionate matter than it really is and partly of the hope that acceptable mainstream filmmaking can contain elements of unacceptable and passionless porn people instinctively know that the very real sex in porn films is followed by the principals leaving the set to arrange for cocaine deals or to pore matter-of-factly over want ads looking for a Jeep 4 X 4.
