Four Nights of a Dreamer

Four Nights of a Dreamer ★★½

The artistic emphasis on negative space and what is lacking reflects strongly in Jacques' life, occupying his daily loneliness with idealised versions of the women he encounters in the bustling streets of Paris. It's all emptiness, and the film concludes with his acceptance of this substitute. A thought-provoking film with some beautiful imagery but I felt this one dragged. I was not invested in the characters and didn't buy the romance - but maybe that was the point?
