Le Chignon D'Olga

Le Chignon D'Olga (2002) was recently released in the UK on dvd by Artificial Eye. It's a debut for french director Jerome Bonnell, and it stars Hubert Benhamdine and Nathalie Boutefeu.

The concept of the film seems interesting even if it doesn't sound original (Nenette and Boni comes to mind) and i wanted to know if anyone has seen the film/dvd and if it's worth a try?

I did. This film is fair at best. It is a very simple story built upon a structural frame awkwardly resembling Iosselini’s Monday Morning (Lundi Matin). The plot, or the lack of, is obviously intentional as the simplicity of the story is where the director is trying to capture our attention. I would not characterize this film as a typical “slice-of-life” production but there are indeed some parallels to be made. Overall, not a bad film by any means yet not a memorable experience either.
