review by
Mike Haberfelner

  • Meek Marrianne: Small fry crook Rich (Blake Fitzpatrick) picks up Mariranne (Tiffani Fest), taking her to be a vagrant and figuring she might help him in some of his heists. But Marianne has actually recently been kicked out by her husband (Andy Gates), who has taken in another woman (Felissa Rose) in her stead ... and now she wants, with Rich's help, to ransack her husband's place.
  • La Petite Mort: Alexandre (Peter Lofstrom), who's talking directly into the camera most of the time, thinks he's God's gift to mankind and thinks his tattooed body should be cherished by all - and is so lost in his delusions that he doesn't notice the woman he loves (Tiffani Fest) is just making a fool out of him.
  • Hollywood Hospitality: Evan (Andrew Mandapat) takes in Grace (Tiffani Fest), a homeless and disillusioned out-of-work actress, because she reminds him so much of his deceased wife, also an actress who never managed to make it big. But Grace is at a point where she can no longer distinguish between genuine kindness and typical Hollywood fakery ...

Though an open hommage to French nouvelle vague cinema from 50+ years ago (down to the point where the film comes with French subtitles), Trilogie de Tragedie does more than merely ape the films of old and in challenging the pre-dominant cinematic language (like the nouvelle vague did back when) the film finds its own style - or rather three of them, as the three segments, all made by different directors and only sharing Tiffani Fest in the lead and a musical score made up from vintage jazz tunes, some very recognizable, differ vastly from one another in approach, and yet by itself each segment is very intersting in its own way and adds to the anthology as a whole rather than distracting from it. And a very competent ensemble cast make this a maybe unusual but pretty fascinating movie to watch.
