Fifth about The Seventh

Frances Ha

Frances Ha: films that have just a sliver of a story to tell, such as this one, must have an interesting character or group of characters; as a comedy, there are brief moments when it works. The main character here, however, is apathetic, uninteresting and almost annoying; furthermore, the character arch is unconvincing and rushed, almost inorganic. Greta Gerwig plays the character apathetically and uninterestingly, which may be the point but doesn’t help to make the experience better. The main upside is that the cinematography in Black-and-White is simple and good-looking.
