Movie Review: Lady In The Car With Glasses And A Gun

A young and meager secretary embarks on a maddening journey through France in the 1960s.



Lady in the Car with Glasses and a Gun begins slowly while a subtly beautiful young French secretary, Dany Dorémus, is asked to work extra hours completing a report at her boss’s home one night. After completing her tasks he insists she accompany his family to the airport so that she can drive their car home for them instead of leaving it in the parking garage while they are gone. Dany obliges and after the family leaves on their vacation she begins her trip back to Paris with their car but then takes a detour to the ocean. On her little jaunt she finds herself wrapped up in a warped mistaken identity alternative reality and slowly begins to question her mental state. Dany is taken by surprise by an attacker and then a thief. Before she knows it there’s a dead body in the trunk of the car and she’s trapped in an adventure she never wanted to have in the first place.


This remake of the original 1970s version of Lady in the Car with Glasses and a Gun, although remarkably shot and obviously well-funded by Magnolia Pictures, almost makes no sense at all. The film has too many storylines mixed into each other that causes the audience to lose focus. The entire film is in subtitles but yet the musical lyrics are all in English. There are numerous jump cuts of foreshadowing, but then complete snippets of scenes that could be dreams, or recollections. Unlike Quentin Tarantino and M. Night Shyamalan whom both do an amazing job at surprising the audience even though the story is potentially unveiled in the beginning of their films, Joann Sfar (Director) and Patrick Godeau (Screenplay Writer) were frustratingly confusing.


By the time the audience made it to the climax of the film, they did such a poor job laying out the storyline they had to have a main character spell out the entirety of what had actually happened. Then they used flashbacks to follow through so that the plot was wrapped up in a nice package for the viewer to finally have the “Ah-ha” moment that usually naturally occurs in other well thought out films.
The aesthetics of this film are phenomenal and draw the viewer in on looks alone, but with the story leaving the audience confused and lost. I would suggest watching something else, as there are so many other options out at the moment.

Lady in the Car with Glasses and Gun has a runtime of 93 minutes.
