About the Film:
CELINE AND JULIE GO BOATING
France, 1974
Runtime: 109 minutes
LANGUAGE: French with English subtitles

This magical tale recounts the adventures of librarian Julie (Dominique Labourier) and the flamboyant Celine (Juliet Berto), who acts as a kind of White Rabbit leading Julie through the Looking Glass into a world of imagination. With some memory-inducing candy, Celine and Julie plug into a bizarre drama in a mysterious house. They enter disguised as nurses and encounter two women in love with the same man. The widower promised his wife he would not remarry as long as their daughter was alive. As the competition in the triangle reaches a murderous level, the high-spirited heroines plot a daring rescue of the young victim. One of the seminal films of 1970s, Celine and Julie Go Boating is a brilliant meditation on the art of cinema and the nature of fantasy.

    Kudos to those of us who sat through this entire 3-hour weird movie and made it to the end! I saw a few of you leaving and I wanted to let you know that it DID get better and more interesting toward the end! I don't think I'd ever want to sit through it again though. It was your typical "arty" French film. "Alice in Wonderland" meets "Groundhog Day" and "The Matrix" as if directed by Luis Bunuel.

    I only found 4 other group members, so I am marking the rest of you as "no-shows". Chronic no-shows will be removed from the group.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
