ON GUARD / FIVE DAY LOVER

ON GUARD / FIVE DAY LOVER REVIEWED

“On Guard” is one wacky movie about a bastard birth. Basically, two royal friends battle it out over who will gain the Duke’s favor. This involves murdering distant relatives, hunting down a rogue wedding and stalking a bastard across decades. There’s a lot of fancy murder, but it’s done in that colorful French style. For a movie from the late 1990s, there’s a really odd flair about the production.

“Five Day Lover” is a very early Jean Seberg starring role. It’s great seeing her bounce off French contemporaries to make an adult comedy. Is it meant to be funny? I never quite got a handle on it, but I did enjoy the cringe. Watching a group of cheaters have to move around each other is always intriguing. However, the film never hangs the complexity of the film’s conceit. Still…Seberg.
