Product Description

Amazon.ca

Tournant pour la première fois en anglais, Léa Pool a fait de Lost and Delirious une ode à l’amour passionnel, un film qui a les audaces et les errements de l’adolescence qu’il décrit.

Trois ans après avoir perdu sa mère, une adolescente (Mischa Barton) entre au collège, où elle partage une chambre avec une fille de bonne famille (Jessica Paré) et une orpheline rebelle (Piper Perabo) qui s’aiment sous le regard, d’abord incrédule puis complice, de la nouvelle venue. Lorsque leur liaison est découverte, le scandale éclate. La première niera tout, se jetant dans les bras d’un garçon, tandis que la seconde, folle de douleur, tentera de la reconquérir.

Adapté du roman The Wives of Bath, de Susan Swan, le scénario de Judith Thompson n’évite pas les invraisemblances et les raccourcis, mais la réalisation de Léa Pool est impeccable. Depuis le début des années 80, la réalisatrice de La Femme de l’hôtel et de La Demoiselle sauvage a développé un univers et un langage très particuliers. Ici, après le virage amorcé avec Emporte-moi, elle poursuit dans une veine plus accessible, laissant toute la place à l’intrigue, et obtenant de ses jeunes actrices des performances exceptionnelles. C’est le cas en particulier de Piper Perabo, vibrante à souhait.

Trop grand public pour être un film d’auteur, mais trop personnel pour être strictement commercial, Lost and Delirious est un genre de Dead Poets Society au féminin, un film sensuel et lyrique qui exalte la soif d’absolu propre à cet âge critique. --Éric Fourlanty

This is NOT a "lesbian" movie. I keep seeing this movie listed as a "lesbian" movie--as though it's only for a lesbian audience. It's not. It's an amazing piece of art about that deals with universal themes of love, acceptance, betrayal (of the self and of others), friendship, loyalty, honesty, peer pressure, emotional dependance, parenting, prejudice and more.
Mainly, it's about the damage done by labels, as lead Paulie says to Mouse, "I'm not a girl in love with a girl, I'm Paulie in love with Tory." So don't label, watch. And don't think this movie won't move you if you aren't gay. It will.
I'd say it's one of the most quietly powerful movies I've ever watched.

Ah, boarding schools! All girl boarding schools! As an erotic cliche, its tried and true, but so damn sexy! And that pretty much sums up LOST AND DELIRIOUS. It thrives on cliches, and takes itself way too seriously, but boy are the sex scenes the hottest things this side of an X-rating!
Of course, I'm bound to get some flack for these comments, but, alas, this is how it is and how I see the movie.
The story focuses on three roommates Polly, Tori and Sarah, at a prestigious boarding school where it's seemingly so easy for the girls to sneak out at night.
Well, Polly and Tori are engaged in one hell of a steamy relationship. In fact, they go at it just about every night. Well, when they are caught, Tori calls it off, and starts dating a man (in fact, he gets her up against a tree on their first date!! Damn, I should've gone to boarding school!).
Well, Polly gets all bent out of shape and jealous and starts acting like a total wacko.
And so on and so on. Aside from the hot sex, the whole thing just doesn't amount to much more than a homoerotic DAWSONS CREEK episode. Even the soundtrack is pretty foolish (listen for the absolutely absurd, recurring theme song that has the oh-so-poetic lyrics "What pretty hair......Can I Kiss You? Can I Kiss You............There?" YEAH!
That pretty much sums up the film, but, alas, I'm not going to lie- When it's on late night, you can sure as hell bet that I'm gonna watch it!
The one thing I don't understand is this- I wish they did more with the virginal, Sarah. I figured when the relationship between Polly and Tori ended, that Polly would sorta recruit Sarah and "show her the ropes." They kind of hint at that, but it never comes to fruition. Oh well. Perhaps there will be "Lost and Delirious 2: The Lost Days/Nights."

Recalling Dead Poets Society but with the gay theme outed and some explicit sex thrown in, Lost and Delirious tells the story of a failed lesbian romance betwen two students (a third roomate watches and does nothing). And like so many recent teen flicks, there are a number of citations from Shakespeare--Antony and Cleopatra (4.15 60-62), Twelfth Night (Viola's willow speech to Olivia), Macbeth (Lady Macbeth's "Unsex me here" speech) and Hamlet (a guy who fences the lesbian character played Laertes). Lost and Delirious seriously disappoints in its bland editing and cinematgraphy, its incoherent characterization (a character goes from being in love and lesbian to being hateful and hetero with no clear explanation; another passively watches and does nothing to help the rejected lesbian character she is supposed to have befriended, etc.), its consistently bad (over)acting, and its frequently horrific screenwriting. It's not at all surprising that the film immediately tanked at the box office. Despite its many flaws, however, Lost and Delirious is watchable--barely. I'd wait for it to show up on the Lifetime Channel and watch it then.

This movie is truely exceptional. It deals with total love (which happens to be between two young women). An independant and strong woman (Paulie played by Piper Perabo) loses her lover (Tori played by Jessica Pare)and gradually sinks into dispair. The story is observed/narrated by Mouse (Mischa Barton).
Tori and Paulie are deeply in love, easy and relaxed with each other and passionate about each other. Paulie is the strength in the relationship protecting her woman. Tori fears family disapproval and cuts off the woman she loves. Paulie fights to win back her lover against impossible odds. The movie is deeply sad, is well acted (brilliantly in the case of Perabo - this woman will be a mega-star) and is an emotional roller coaster. To quote the author Carole Taylor - "Love conquers nothing. Fear conquers all" (from "A Third Story"). For L&D fans, the music "Beautiful" is by Me'Shell Ndegeocello from the CD "Bitter". The movie is based on the book "The Wives of Bath" by Susan Swan. This movie is a must for anyone (of either sex) who loves women. Of my 200 DVD collection, this one I could not survive without. The quote of the movie: - "I am not a lesbian, I am Paulie and I love Tori". This is romance at its finest (and saddest)if you watch it a dozen times you will find more nuances and still wish you could make it ok for them - It deserves to be recognised as the classic romance that it is. BUY IT.

The movie starts out with a fascinating dynamic and I thought it was going to be more about how Mischa Barton was going to cope with sharing a boarding school dorm room with two lesbian roommates who are in love with each other. Now before you run for the hills thinking this is some either cheesy and sleazy premise, it's not.

The problem is this is another teenage angst movie with far too much angst and not emphasis on the teenage experience.

Why is it almost every movie that deals with troubled teens end in violence? I just thought (SPOILER ALERT) once the two lesbian girls split up that the entire story fell off the rails. I was, in fact, more interested in Mischa Barton's idea to help out the head gardener Graham Greene with the school's gardening chores. That was a better movie to be honest as Barton shows exactly why she was picked to star in "The O.C." as her talent at even this young age comes through.

Anyway, worth renting but not buying just to catch Barton's acting chops.
