Les créatures

Well, I dunno. I mean, I’m a huge Varda fan, but this seems like such a mish-mash… It’s less like a Varda movie than a Godard pastiche?

Lots of crabs. Must be symbolic.

And then all of a sudden that guy’s playing chess with er satan or somebody. But a very high tech satan — he’s got a 3D chessboard and surveillance cameras!

Which makes sense.

The other guy is on the side of lurve.

It’s a pretty good idea, I guess, but the resulting movie isn’t really that gripping.


Les Créatures was an official selection of the 27th Venice International Film Festival, though it received mixed reviews. The film failed commercially.

Well, I can see that. I don’t think it’s a successful movie, but it’s kinda interesting? But…


There are no critic reviews yet for The Creatures.

Nobody has reviewed this movie for the Tomatoes? Perhaps it hasn’t been shown for a while? So I guess it was a real bomb commercially.

And it’s not a lost masterpiece.

The Creatures. Agnès Varda. 1966.
