the betrayal of a great book
8 March 2015 | by AtotheTSee all my reviews

Lets start by this simple information : bye bye blondie is a book written by V.Des pentes in 2004 few years after big edition success Baise moi (fuck me). Being myself a citizen of Nancy (name of the town the book takes place for its 3/4) i have really liked it and i think i understood even its deepest aspect and guessed the non given information of it. To be clear : the love story happens between a working class girl and a fancy and rich class boy living in the ''Isabey '' part of the city and being probably student in st sigisbert high school. The strengh of the book is that it shows how Gloria (the female protagonist) switches from platonic to deep physical love with a boy from a total different background because he's involuntarily meeting with her punk values (abbility to dress psycho, to fight, to play guitar, to match and get friend with other punk boys). I have nothing against homosexuality, but this story can not be transfered to the love story of 2 girls, this is exactly why the viewer wont believe a word of it !! When i went to see it i know i was going for a massive deception, and it's been worse again !!! For me this movie should not exist under the same name or with any link or relatio n to the book ... Virginie, what the hell did you want to prove realizing this film ?????
