The Girl from Monday back to product details

A Little Sci-Fi, A Little Satire, All Hartley-esque

Bless Hal Hartley. He just keeps turning out movies his own way, like 'em or not. I usually do, and THE GIRL FROM MONDAY is no exception. My partner found it baffling, but I was willing to follow it anywhere. Hartley has charm to spare at the oddest times (the shot of the three sleeping fugitives, eyes like slits), and his interesting take on the future, when we're all bar-coded and sex is even more of a commodity (is that possible? Yes, indeed), is quite pointed. His little asides (where will our future high school teachers come from?) are quietly hilarious, too. Nowhere near Hartley's best (that's "Henry Fool"), this is still a perfectly OK place to start, if you want to discover his work. Or to continue, if you're already a fan.
