#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – A multi-faceted film based on Raymond Jean’s novel “La Lectrice”. Constance (Miou-Miou) reads the novel aloud in bed to her lover. Inspired by the story of Marie, a woman who advertises her services as a reader of literature, Constance decides to do the same. Here the film takes on a kaleidoscopic effect as the lives of Constance and Marie become merged, making it hard to distinguish what is real and what is fantasy. This structure is further complicated when the lives of Constance’s clients become tangled with the stories she reads. The film is interspersed with readings from well known literary sources as diverse as, amongst others, Baudelaire, Duras, Tolstoy, Lewis Carroll and de Sade’s “120 days…”
Plot: Constance is a young lady who likes to read – and who likes to dream while reading – to imagine, to create images. This is what she does for «La Lectrice», a novel which tells the adventures of Marie, a young lady who likes reading so much that she decides to make a profession of it. Selected texts, Provence in wintertime, different neighbourhoods. Deviations from fiction, secret itinaries. An imaginary space penetrates the space of the town, whose streets Marie stries along, while Constance devours novel. The unknown lies behind each word.

World Literature coming to life in this “very French” Comedy
Our heroine Constance (played by Miou-Miou in yet another role where she seems to play the same character as always…herself) turns her passion for literature into an exciting and profitable “profession”. Her little newspaper advertisement eventually brings her a variety of eccentric clients who take advantage of this young woman’s services (literally). Hired to read to the disabled, the elderly and the bored, Constance creates, fulfills and participates in her employers’ fantasies and peculiar dreams. Warned by the clerk who helped her with the initial advertisement not to be surprised if her ventures yield complications and trouble, Constance seems to not only meet the challenge, but to enjoy the sense of danger and surprise.
The degree of tolerance and acceptance of human sexuality displayed in this film may appear over-the-top to viewers unfamiliar with French culture, and French society’s extremely liberal social mores. This film was produced in the 1980s, not the 60s (you’d never know it). The “anything goes” mentality is likely to perplex the average viewer, and it may even offend some. The twisted freshness and daring situations eventually seem gratuitous. We “get it” pretty early on, yet the soft-core peep show continues throughout the film. The intertwining of actual literary passages and storyline are fascinating. Unfortunately my fascination with this film ends there.
reading and sex
Constance (Miou-Miou) reads a novel called The Reader to her boyfriend in bed. In the book, Marie (Miou-Miou) starts a business to read for her clients and places an ad in the newspaper. She gets several clients, each with their own issues.
I would like the directing to be less stagey and more cinematic. It’s not surprising that I find Miou-Miou walking briskly through the empty streets to classical music as the most uplifting scenes. It’s fine for Constance to be in a stage setup but the rest should be livelier. It doesn’t help that reading is not the most compelling visual exercise. Miou-Miou’s voice is lovely enough but translating in words does take away some of the joy of reading. I’m sure the French get more out of Marie’s reading. It mostly goes over my head and into the ether. I’m probably missing the heart and soul of the movie. This is a French love letter to reading. It’s too bad that I can only read it like a first grader.
