Audience Reviews for Notre histoire (Our Story)(Separate Rooms)


In "Notre Histoire," Robert Avranche(Alain Delon) is minding his own business, riding in the first class compartment of a train, when he is interrupted by Donatienne(Nathalie Baye) who tells him a story of seeing a man on a platform drinking a beer who she had sex with. After the encounter, she leaves the train with him in pursuit after he buys a couple of beers. When they get back to her place, he tells her that he has 500,000 francs in his suitcase saved up from his garage business which she spends a little bit of. But his presence soon gets tiresome and she calls in his brother Sam(Philippe Laudenbach) to get him out of there. "Notre Histoire" is your typical mind-frying, entertainingly surreal Bertrand Blier movie. What starts out as a very simple setup, soon explodes with many different characters showing up, each with their own individual stories and with an inbuilt audience.(In some ways a larger audience than a lot of movies I go to.) This is business as usual in this town since they have always had an eye on Donatienne's extracurricular activities. Robert gets more than he bargained for when he seeks to get to know her better, as she also finds out more about him. None of this stops for a second, going from house to house for the most part, except Robert who enjoys his chair very much, thank you. And it is a shock to see Alain Delon, usually a man of action, here a man of inaction. Even though this is an older model, he is still in good enough shape for a couple of fight scenes.

things are definitely not as they seem in this film. Fantastical events succinctly culminate at the movies end.
