    Hi, me again, i forgot to say something good.
    If this snuff deserves a peek it could be for Karen Bach (former french porn star Karen Lancaume): too cute, fair comedian, amused distance one step beyond the stinky project. She definitely makes the movie - what else could anyhow ?

    A french point of view

    We french "intellos" really thank you american movie monks for taking such good care of our cultural patrimony, because so few people here in France seem to give a shit. But letting you say "Baise-Moi" is "Nouvelle vague"...
    Here no one who thinks a bit cared about the film (before it's been X-rated under pressure of extreme right-wing lobbies), no one just thought about calling it "nouvelle vague", ever. We just called it "questionable" and "ugly", feeling guilty to say so because it could be understood as a position against freedom of expression. As a matter of fact, when the movie has been first restricted to 16 and more, most French critics thought : Why? Who over 16 could be concerned by such a dull (not freaky, just dull) philo background? They saw it as some cock-a-doodle-doo culty/edgy Z-movie, to be rented by 14-16 teen jerks to shake saturday nite coca•ne-pizza parties... Do you americans see anything more? Really?
