This is a true-to-the-letter re-telling of Henry Miller's memoir about Montmartre life, with very little food and many, many women.
This is a true-to-the-letter re-telling of Henry Miller’s memoir about Montmartre life, with very little food and many, many women.Director Jens-Jorgen Thorsen shows both technical skill and madcap humor and, furthermore, knows more than a little about the loneliness dimension of Miller’s work. Paul Valjean looks like the popular image of Henry Miller, easygoing, nice, lecherous, hungry and full of fun. Among the girls who indulge in unlimited frontal nudity, Louise White, Ulla Lemvigh-Muller and Susanne Krage have the rather spectacular achievement of making the audience remember their faces as well as their bodies.
