Summary:

THE NEW EVE is a sometimes funny French film about an illicit affair between a neurotic woman with lesbian tendencies and the married leader of a local faction of the French Socialist Party. The ending to THE NEW EVE is unbelievable and abrupt, and the movie includes foul language, a nonchalant toward sexual immorality, a scene at an orgy, pro-socialist sentiments, and significant amounts of nudity.

Review:

THE NEW EVE is a sometimes funny French film from a woman director. In the story, a young neurotic woman with lesbian tendencies in Paris literally becomes sick of the party life she’s undertaken as she falls in love with the balding local leader of the French Socialist Party. When she unhappily finds out he’s married, she still can’t stop her pursuit of him, until he surrenders to her charms. They start a secret affair, but, as is often the case, the woman gets upset when the man shows little interest in leaving his wife. Once separated, however, the couple desperately tries to get together again, but a series of funny misadventures keeps them apart until the very end.

The ups and downs of this illicit affair, and the neurotic behavior of the young woman, especially when she disrupts her lover’s socialist meetings, are sometimes amusing. The ending becomes a bit unbelievable, however, as well as abrupt. Morally, of course, THE NEW EVE is a mess! Not only does it say adultery and eventually divorcing your wife for another woman are okay, it also contains pro-socialist and pro-homosexual sentiments. In fact, two of the young woman’s closest friends are lesbian lovers, so a couple scenes take place at a homosexual bar and an orgy. Although the movie at times looks satirically at the behavior of the woman, that cannot excuse the movie’s immoral heart.
