Something between a portrait and a performance doc, Ne change rien is entrancing—literally. I saw it at a 10 a.m. screening in Cannes and stumbled out as if from an after-hours bar. On one hand, the movie is powerfully soporific; on the other, it has a controlled, hypnotic, Sufi energy. The cinematography is stunning and beyond atmospheric. The music is highly intelligent and the structure is totally musical. Balibar as Balibar is undeniably charismatic. When, toward the end, she appears on a Tokyo stage with a band, discreetly gyrating in tight jeans and an off-the-shoulder sweater, to fervently intone the theme from Johnny Guitar, she’s nothing less than the muse of cinema.
