Surreal film - two characters in search of a story

Notre Histoire (1984) stars Alain Delon and Nathalie Baye. Delon won the French equivalent of the Oscar, the Cesar, for this. He was not there to accept it. The presenter accepted it and still had it when he died. However to this day it has never shown up.

Robert Avranche (Delon), a garage owner mostly in an alcoholic stupor meets a young woman (Baye) on a train. She tells him a story, in a way fantasizing what will happen to them. They have sex. When she leaves, he follows her, obsessed.

Her name is Donatienne, and she sleeps with everyone. Robert won't leave her house and keeps drinking. The two tell each other stories, writing themselves in and out of them. The neighbors become involved, walking back and forth between houses in their bathrobes.

So what is the story?

This is a bizarre film which is wrapped up at the end, so if you see it, stick with it. It's actually fascinating. Delon is fantastic and deserved the award he received but never had in his hand. This supposedly demolished his super-cool killer image, but he never really gave it up, in my opinion.

Nathalie Baye does a wonderful job as well, playing several different characters.

Interesting movie!

The strange woman in the train

Robert Avranche, a man riding in a first class compartment of a train, is seen lost in thought. One thing is clear, the man loves to drink his beer. Robert tells us how he will meet a strange woman, who surprise surprise, materializes soon after he announced it. She is Donnatiene, a woman who loves to hang out in train stations to see the passengers getting on, and off the trains that pass by. She is a mysterious woman, and Robert feels he must follow her to her home. What he finds there is a chaotic situation involving a whole community where the men love to come to watch him in action.

Not having seen the film before, we had a chance to watch it on a cable channel not long ago. The allure of seeing a film directed by Bertrand Blier with Alain Delon and Nathalie Baye in the main roles was a defining factor. "Notre histoire" though, is a dated film, which no doubt had a different resonance when it made its commercial debut. The script was written by Mr. Blier, who has done much better before. What the director gets is good acting in general. Mr. Delon and Ms. Baye are able performers that are able to carry any film by themselves. The interesting thing about the film is that actors of the stature of Jean Reno, Vincent Lindon, Jean-Pierre Darroussin and others are seen in small roles.

The THREE Faces Of Eve? You've Got To Be Kidding

Seems like Bertrand Blier can't do Surreal unless he begins either in a train station (Buffet Froid) or else ON a train (Notre Histoire). You can't say he doesn't go to the top-of-the-line because here he not only features Alain Delon and Nathalie Baye but throws in Vincent Lindon, Jean Reno and most notably Jean-Pierre Darroussin. If he'd only thrown in a decent script we might have been talking Classic as it is we have to content ourselves with fine movie brilliantly acted by Delon and an almost unrecognizable Baye - funny thing is that Darroussin is completely recognizable albeit light years younger than in most of the films we know him from, whilst Baye albeit far from a dog is not a tenth as gorgeous as she subsequently became and remains. What we're left with is a Cesar Award winning Best Actor performance, thoroughly deserved, by Delon, another SHOULD have won a Best Actress Cesar from Baye and Blier taking some of the stuff he lays on his analyst when on the couch and transforming it to the screen.
