This film, and there are many other French films just like that, beautifully demonstrates how the French perceive adultery and love. I love French films and I watch as many as I can. They also sport long and unkempt hair and mustaches I guess early 1980's fashion. She is the most nominated actress for the César Award, with 14 nominations. There are some scenes in this film that will make you shake your head in disbelief, or might even make you question yourself on how would you behave in similar situation. Acting since a child and garnering notice on the stage, Isabelle stepped onto the big screen in La Prussien 1971 , and celluloid instantly became sexuloid.

. Loulou follows them from the diner and stops Andre from pounding on Nelly, the two scuffle and push each other, but the funny thing is that none of them throw any real punches at one another, they fight in unmanly fashion. He represents the lowest strata of society. Depardieu plays the title role of Loulou affectionately short for Louis a young ex-convict just released from prison, most likely for stealing which can be inferred during one scene where he and his pals steal boxes of gramophones from a warehouse. This is where the French culture and their concept of sex, loyalty, and ideals comes in.
The performance also earned Elle an Oscar nom! Women are all dressed in fur coats or pea coats. Soon she was Going Places 1974 and showing off her Rosebud 1975 in a series of scandalous French features, such as the aforementioned titles. Finally, an old woman breaks up the whole scene accusing both men for breaking her mailbox. That's it, that's the film. As the three exit the courtyard into the street, Andre calls on Loulou to talk to him in private.
There is not much to them, they end as they begin. They begin arguing and Andre explodes and begins hitting her, as she runs away from him Andre follows her into a courtyard. There's no characterization - everyone is so one note e. Pialat's best moments involve scenes of violence outbursts - a family get together soured by jealousy, the loud music of a disco drowning out shouting, and a brawl between Depardieu and Marchand in a courtyard with a following drink together as evidence of the French form of civilised behaviour. There's something about the French. She lives with her husband in a nice apartment with a maid service, yet she is very unhappy in her marriage, and her husband Andre is very jealous and madly in love with her. There's not even much meaningful dialogue, nothing with depth, which is at least something one can count on with French films loads of deep monologues.
Something interesting that I noticed while watching this film is that all men in it are dressed in leather jackets, with exception for maybe one hippie guy. And although we can see how limiting Depardieu's world is to Huppert, we also understand her attraction to him, highlighted by a silent image of the couple stumbling down a street in a drunken embrace. Nelly and Andre go outside to address the whole situation separation and finical issues and she goes inside Andre's car. One night Nelly while on a night out with her girlfriend runs into Loulou in a local Parisian disco. Loulou 1980 by Maurice Pialat a French film maker who surely deserves more international recognition starting the French stars Gerard Depardieu and Isabelle Huppert is one might say a very typical French love story. One scene for instance, has Nelly and Loulou sitting in a diner when Andre comes in.
Director Maurice Pialat's film is more an exercise in star power than any presentation of narrative, with Isabelle Huppert leaving her husband Guy Marchand for the leather-clad ex-con ruffian Loulou played by Depardieu. Isabelle Huppert is Nelly, a wife of a well prospering business man. If Loulou's character is sketched thinly that may to keep him as an enigma, the mysterious bad-boy that women always seem to prefer. American audiences finally got a taste of her sweet pastry in the monumental money-loser Heaven's Gate 1980. After watching about 30 minutes of this film I began thinking about turning it off. I wouldn't recommend this film, unless you're really curious to see what all the pointless fuss is about. There was time in my life when I watched a lot of French productions, one might even say I watched exclusively French films produced during the second half of the 20th century.
In 2017, she won a Golden Globe for best actress in a drama for the movie Elle, where Isabelle showed her beautiful buns and boobs multiple times. Even though the tone takes its cue from the character of Loulou as a womanising drifter, the low key seemingly improvised rambling scenes are preferable to the gab-fests of Eric Rohmer, who is responsible for the negative connotations associated with French films by Americans. Get ready to polish off your own statue. They began an affair, and Andre is having a difficult time accepting his wives' behavior. It's really the most non-story film I've watched in some time. A man without perspectives nor ambition, a criminal. She exposed every inch of her perfect body right down to the hairy beret between her legs.
Isabelle's portrayal of the proprietor of a Wild West brothel was anything but a flop, however. Having the opportunity to finally watch 'Loulou' was something I really was looking forward to, but I feel so let down. Huppert also has an early scene with Marchand where the camera follows his pursuit and humiliation of her, and here Huppert's anger invalidates the myth of her as a passive performer. Pialat also gives Marchand a laugh by having him resort to playing the saxophone in depression.
