France , 1998, 103 min, color

This movie tells the story of Louise and her friends in Paris. They spend their time in the metro, playing, loving and breaking the laws. By chance she meets Remi, a homeless ladies’ man with an excellent supply of pick up lines and self-assured charm. The meeting between Louise and a young boy will bring some “romance” into their violent world. Unlike her pals, she does have a home to go to, but the girl is following some half-baked theory about how the adrenaline of real life is in the risks of petty crime and edgy survival on the street. The city is the gang’s oyster, until Louise is arrested, prompting a sort of psychic break between who she is and who she’s been pretending to be.
A movie about today’s youth, about people living on the edge of society, in the oppressive but poetic world of the Paris metro.

“Little is known about mono-monikered wunderkind Siegfried, but his first feature Louise (Take 2), speaks for itself. The film careens around with a verve and immediacy that will appeal to youth, but tackles the big existential questions with flimsy whimsy that may irk adults.
As Leos Carax did with Lovers on the Bridge (1991), Siegfried incorporated real homeless individuals into his tale. With their weather-beaten faces and chewy delivery slowed by drink, they are free of artifice and project their own dignity. But the movie takes forever to intimate that there might be a gulf between playing at being down-and-out and the real article.”
