Staying Vertical . . . [Mar. 28th, 2017|06:42 am]
Phrembah (a potato-like mystery)

. . .  is a slice o' life flick from the South of France (read: totally friggin' bizarre).  The core of the story is pretty mundane, reminding me of the shiftless, unanchored hippie folk I knew in my youth, people who I found it difficult to be around because their lives were so random and unfocused.  But that's just me.  The story of Staying Vertical seems to involve more than a few metaphors that I'm afraid got by me.  I'd have to see it again to begin to figure out the symbolism, but I'm not sure I could watch it again.  Let's just say it's intriguing.  There is at least one scene that is needlessly graphic, assuming it was necessary at all.

'Mater Meter:  67%      Phrembahmeter:  68%  I'll see your meter reading and raise you one for originality and cinemacraft and because I tend to cherish the bizarre even if I can't always stomach it.  Sing chabingo!

DANGER, WILL ROBINSON ! ! !  This movie is entirely French with English subtitles.  If you don't read English particularly well, you may experience higher than usual levels of befuddlement.
