Product Description


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

A very powerful story that resonated with me totally and completely. Others have discussed the plot. The movie is well-scripted but stumbles on two major points. I am a great fan of Piper Perabo. Watching Piper today, she has matured into a compelling, accomplished actress. Ten years ago, asking her to play Pauli was a stretch, an immensely difficult role. Pauli's outward character is cavalier, disdainful of authority, unwilling to compromise or conform to social expectations. Inwardly, she is so sensitive, and so fragile. I can't quite buy into Piper's portrayal. (Jessica Pare simply shines as "Victoria".) Secondly, I am extremely disappointed with the movie's direction. It is unimaginative and pedestrian. Compare it to "When Night is Falling" which also has a lebian theme. Both stories deal with a negative (conservative) social milieu and an emotional crisis in the relationship. Both films are marked by suicide attempts, one is successful, the other (thankfully for the audience) is not. Patricia Rozema directing "When NIght is Falling" has an easier path to follow. Why? Because her characters experience a feeling of "love" that is widely understood. In "Lost and Delirious", we are confronted with a love that is far more complex. What is the nature of Pauli's mental state? Well, it goes way beyond normal. It is an altered state of consciousness. Film is the medium of vision. Pauli's use of extensive Shakespearian quotes misses the point. All this chatter ultimately underscores the failure of the film to use the potential of its medium. I remember how watching Bergman's "Persona" indelibly changed my perception of reality. I gave Lea Pool four stars for an honest and sincere effort. Yet, somehow the potential opportunity to give us more from such rich material has been squandered.

Good movie to watch if only to see 3 new young actresses who later hit big with their respective career. Piper Perabo, Jessica Paré and Mischa Barton are great to watch. The movie itself is good entertainment worth the price for one viewing.

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."

Too many reviews of Lost & Delirious that detail the storyline to do the movie any further justice. Instead I will focus on its leading star, Piper Perabo. I first saw this 2001 movie while surfing the movie channels. After five minutes of watching a group of teen girls attending their first day (back) at boarding school, I was about to switch channels with no intention of turning back. That is, until Piper Perabo, whom I had not seen previously (Coyote Ugly, 2000), pop out from behind an arm chair smoking a cigarette. I was hooked on her performance and storyline within moments to the extent that I watched it again the following week, and ultimately purchased the DVD from Amazon.

I am led to believe that Lost & Delirious was a low key project and one that didn't garner any true form of mainstream audience. And that is a shame. Without doubt, despite its low budget tag, Piper's performance was of 'Oscar Award' strength. Aided by a strong ensemble of actors, Piper's talents shone in every scene, none more so than where she is distraught over losing the love of her room mate. Ms. Perabo's performance was powerful, mesmerizing and the storyline thought provoking. It would be fair to say that the conclusion was heart-rending. It took some while for a degree of normalcy to return to one's life ~ a true indicator of the power of an actor's performance.

Although Ms. Perabo has featured in a couple of lead roles since this movie, in addition to her starring role in Covert Affairs (USA Network & Showcase Canada), I am bewildered as to why Piper has not garnered more headliner roles. Choose to watch Lost & Delirious to witness not only a first rate movie with depth, but to see an actress whose talents overflow the screen.
