There aren't many movies that will be so compelling to me that I don't think about the time going by or go to the bathroom or find myself distracted by other things. From the opening scene through to the end credits, Colette was that rare filmgoing experience where I felt every shot, every frame, every moment was essential and compelling. The performances are amazing and this story is absolutely riveting. I can't wait to see it again.
Wonderful film! (by mattachine2001-866-740063)
Great acting, directing, script. Highly recommend!
Knightley deserves this (by marwood55)
An excellent biopic, and Knightley deserves all the recognition she gets, whatever petulant 'reviews' appear to try to blame a movie character as if she were a real person or try to pass childish whinging off as judgement.
Beautiful, bold, scandalous; a period piece with a gut punch (by inkblot11)
Colette Keira Knightley is a beautiful young French country girl when she catches the eye of a rising author, Willy Dominic West from Paris. They meet because their fathers were together in the military. Its love. After the marriage, the couple moves to Willy's house in Paris, where he provides the "idea" for plays and books while ghost writers do the work. If bills need to be paid, its Willy first. Running in a rather sophisticated circle, Colette feels somewhat excluded. Yet, Willy seems happy with her and he loves the stories she tells about her school days. Desperate for <more>
money, due to extravagant spending, Willy convinces Colette to write a fictional account of her memoirs, called Claudine at School. Polishing it up with minor touches, the book is a huge hit, under Willy's name! Subsequently turned into a play, the couple now is financially afloat. Willy even buys Colette her own house outside Paris, where she can write their next big "novel". But, Willy, who is already in trouble with Colette for his lies, soon locks Colette into a room until she produces the book, Claudine in Paris. This, too, is a big success. Yet, unexpectedly, Colette draws the eye of a Southern Belle who married a rich old duffer in France. A love affair between the two women begins, even as Willy starts another deception. Along down the road, when Claudine scores another hit novel, Colette and Willy have further extramarital flings. Than, Willy blows their money on a failed production and a big secret. Is this the end of the line? This sumptuously beautiful, bold, and scandalous film will be like a gut punch at any viewing. The story line veers into homosexuality, adultery, transgender relationships, and more. Yet, through it all, Colette shines through as a great writer at a time when women were marginalized. As the title character, Knightley is tremendous and beyond lovely. West, too, is absolutely grand. What amazing costumes, scenery, and cinematography delight the film fan, too! The script and direction are also above reproach. No, don't go to see it if you have values which will be supremely offended by the sexual scandals listed above. Yet, if you can keep an open mind while learning about a great French writer, don't pass it by.
Good acting, good period piece, interesting. Would recommend!!
Superb movie about a woman novelist who fights for her independence. (by hnapel)
The movie is set in France at the turn of the 19th into the 20th century which is not immediately clear to the clueless like myself since from the start all the French people mysteriously speak English, I personally only became aware when a trip to Paris took a mere train to reach, but perhaps the title should have given it away. Colette, Claudine so perhaps at this screening I was not at my brightest. The movie is superb, never a dull moment but sometimes the jumps in time are a bit abrupt, for example at one point they are courting and the next setup all married and settled in a house in <more>
Paris, is there an extended version or was it my equipment? The they being Colette and her husband Willy who is somehow a famous writer but has managed to delegate most of his writing to a bunch of lackeys to which he quickly recruits his wife also I can make jumps too . The wife, Colette, with some encouragement, persuasion and sometimes even blatant coercion churns out an increasingly popular series of novels about her alter ego Claudine, the novels are fiction but draw inspiration from her youth and mundane adventures in broiling Paris. Colette discovers her complimentary attraction to women and we are privy to some developments in that area that of course also are good fuel for the printing press, let alone add some spice to this movie and I can use the words girl-on-girl again without honestly having suspected that up front. When the inflated character of her husband Willy starts to dwindle and he both refuses to offer her the critical acclaim she deserves and moreover sells the rights to the Claudine novels for a tuppence she calls it quits and develops a career of her own that was already flourishing in the theater also. The movie is riddled with wit, especially quips from Willy are quite entertaining and it somehow counters the idea that he was a total nitwit, also he must at least be credited with the insight of his wife's genius, if only he had had the courage to publicly admit it. The arc of the movie is about Colette discovering and developing her own voice and breaking free from the influence of Willy and as soon as that is accomplished the movie is over and we are left to the end titles to learn that she really did make it afterwards but all that solitary women's life is not part of the movie which is strange if you consider it is really a movie about feminine independence, well at least achieving it. Keira Knightley is a darling, there I said it and there are a few remarkable scenes in this movie in which she really shines and we can also observe her own personal development in a career that might once warrant a story of its own.
Excellent in every respect, casting, use of color. Well done.
A beautifully written love story from the Belle Époque (by SunriseSong)
The film concerns itself with the beginning of Colette's career by focusing on the relationship between her husband played with exuberance by Dominic West and Kiera Knightly in the title role: their performances are riveting. The dramatic tension between the older bon vivant and the young country girl is a perfectly balanced depiction of the changing mores of the Belle Époque. The supporting cast is admirable, especially Elinor Tomlinson and Denise Gough, as lovers who complicate the relationship of the principle players. The film captures the fin de siecle by focusing on its effects <more>
on a woman who finds her voice and her independence by rejecting the conventions of marriage and blossoms into a writer of renown. It doesn't try to depict her entire career, preferring instead to focus on the writer in first bud. As such, it leaves the audience wanting more. Bravo!
A Nuanced Portrayal of a Headstrong Woman (by SwansonTacos)
This movie is a breath of fresh air in regards to feminist films and queer films. Not once did I roll my eyes and believe that the creators were forcing "woman power" themes. Not once did I think the queerness was disrespectful or fetishistic. I did not feel as if I was being taught a lesson, and so I was completely absorbed throughout. Colette was unapologetically herself, her growth from timid girl to unabashed performer mesmerizing. Her relationship with Missy was sweet and tender, so different from her business-like relationship with Willy. Even Willy was a magnificent <more>
character. My problem with most queer-related films are the men; too often are they cast as pure, one-dimensional abusive villains. Was Willy a bastard? Yes. I believe he acted as the system wanted men to act, but he truly loved Colette. The problem was that he loved himself more, deluded himself into thinking that he had the same talent as his wife had. The way in which Willy shifts from worshipping Colette to seeing her as his inferior merely because she is a woman is an authentic portrayal of a relationship in which neither is good for the other. The success in Willy's character is that you could laugh at him, hate him, and ultimately feel sorry for him. He will never be as great as he wants to be and occasionally thinks himself to be, and it is poetic justice to the wonderfully extreme. The proud, talented characters drive this film, and by god am I glad to have seen it. But the Claudine roleplaying sex scene? Oof. Creepy!
