Love Without Pity ★★½ 1991

Rochant's theatrical debut is a modern romance, with more distance and alienation than joy. A lovely, successful grad student loses her heart to a jobless, unambitious layabout who wants total commitment from her. Untypical, sardonic love story may be too cynical for sentimental types. In French with English subtitles. 95m/C VHS . FR Hippolyte Girardot, Mireille Perrier, Jean Marie Rollin; D: Eric Rochant; W: Eric Rochant; M: Gerard Torikian.
