Bye Bye Blondie Synopsis

Bye Bye Blondie tells the tale of Gloria and Frances, who first met when they were both patients in the same psychiatric hospital back in the 1980s, and decided to run away together. At the time their love affair was defined by youthful intensity. Later, when Francis disappeared without a trace, Gloria mourned the loss with a heavy heart. Over 20 years later, Francis (Emmanuelle Béart) and Gloria (Béatrice Dalle) have both turned 40. They've taken very different paths in life, with nomadic Gloria spending most of her time in a dive bar, and Frances enjoying success as a popular Parisian TV personality. The wife of a closeted and successful novelist, Francis is locked in a mutually-beneficial marriage of convenience when she once again crosses paths with Gloria, and finds her comfortable world turned upside down.

I wasn't sure about this one. The narrative is all over the place, and the performances wildly uneven, especially with the younger cast. I couldn't believe that this came from the director of BAISE MOI. I suspect the production must have been troubled as the film loses pace numerous times and I wonder if the director lost control. That being said, to see french sirens Dalle and Beart go head to head is a real treat, and the 80's fashions and music keep things colourful. An odd little film that is certainly watchable, just not very satisfying.
