Fifth about The Seventh

It’s Only the End of the World (Juste la Fin du Monde)

Its Only the End of the WorldIt’s Only the End of the World: the story being told by Xavier Dolan is common; it’s almost a sub-genre, and this films brings very little new to the table. The characters (however well-played by Léa Seydoux, Marion Cotillard, Nathalie Baye, Gaspard Ulliel, and Vincent Cassel) are unremarkable, dull. All the relationships displayed are rotten, as all they do is get under each other’s skin in loud, insipid dialogues. The film is mostly shot in close-ups by cinematographer André Turpin (for sure, its greatest asset, as it raises the level of the performances), and that forced intimacy with the characters is unpleasant.
