(us) wrote: When the elderly Portuguese director Raul Ruiz died in 2011 he left behind plans for the follow-up to his successful historical epic, Mysteries of Lisbon. His widow Valeria Sarmiento has brought Ruiz's plans to the screen in this hugely ambitious Napoleonic war tale. Like Mysteries, it weaves together numerous strands and characters to recount the long retreat of the Anglo-Portuguese forces in the face of a massive French invasion in 1810-11 - a retreat to the titular Lines of Wellington, the (hopefully) impregnable English defences around Lisbon. Sarmiento has produced a remarkably adept war story, that does not shy away from the gruesome aspects of bitter conflict, particularly for the ordinary folk caught up in the devastation. Some of the characterisation is perhaps a little too melodramatic, and perhaps some of the acting is a little stilted due to the multi-lingual cast, but the film cannot be faulted for the scale of its ambition, and the attention to detail in its production values.

(kr) wrote: Loulou is the story about the a lady named Nelly (Isabelle Hubbert) falls in love with the big boned underclass thug Loulou (Grard Depardieu) through sexual intercourse and no so much trough feeling, sense or sensibility. To bad it doesn't work as it sounds. It's long, it's simply boring and irrelevant. Thumbs down.
