Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The article analyzes the 2004 film "5x2," directed by François Ozon, which stars Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi and Stéphane Freiss. It describes Ozon's manipulation of temporality and focuses on how the film appropriates and experiments with narrative form. The film, which recounts a couple's doomed marriage in reverse, presents Ozon's representation of romantic incompatibility.
