Neither Eve Nor Adam 1996
Ni d’Ève, ni d’Adam (original title)
1h 30min | Drama | 5 February 1997 (France)
Gilles is a young boy with learning difficulties who is forced to fend for himself on the streets. Gabrielle struggles to love him, but he humiliates her so severely that she is forced to give him up.
The potentially touching (if far from original) premise of a girl’s redemptive love for a “misunderstood” loser is spoiled by straining for effect and overall implausibility. Talented direction of young actors, but an immature view of the human condition that lacks the feeling of sacredness that its Bresson-like references to religion seem to seek. Less would have been more.
