La Chambre Verte is a film set in the wake of WWI. It is a mesmerising tour de force, a deep philosophical and anthropological meditation on bereavement, love, death and ritual.It also explores the past in its power to thrust into the present. While the past is gone this great film reminds us how it can continue to cast the shadow of its spell into the present and the future, clouding in the case of this film the protagonist's ability to love someone living, someone who is actual, not virtual.
A brilliant comedy full of ingenuity and Bernadette Lafont as one of the sexiest screen anti-heroines ever. I would watch that again!
