great performances, but each story is too spare and undeveloped to make a real impact, and the whole thing is undercut by the strange choice to include a relentlessly present narration by a man. (and not just any man but artie bucco??? lmao)
catherine deneuve’s character in this has a framed photo of greta garbo as queen christina on her wall and it’s the gayest thing i’ve ever seen on film. she also kisses a woman but somehow the queen christina thing is gayer
