Eyes like a bouquet
This was essentially a long goodbye love letter to her. How amazing it is to see closeups of Anna Karina's face on a large screen, traipsing about as a spy in a trench coat and a silly gun hidden in a book, every flicker of the eye and faint glance becomes a long suspending moment.
I wish I could give proper commentary on the social/politcal themes behind the movie, but I'm but I'm not going to lie, I was too sidetracked by Anna Karina's outfits (of course) and what was strange or funny about the movie. Would love to watch this again having a better idea about the side references that were mentioned from obscure Moroccan Politics to Apollinaire.
Do watch this movie if it is ever shown again on a big screen, let alone in the U.S.A,
I'm already wishing I could catch just one more glimpse.
