La truite (The Trout). 1982. France. Directed by Joseph Losey. Screenplay by Joseph Losey, Monique Lange, based on a novel by Roger Vailland. With Isabelle Huppert, Jean-Pierre Cassel, Jeanne Moreau. In French; English subtitles. 103 min.
Losey’s penultimate film was trashed by most critics for its pretentions and incoherence, but the film nonetheless offers a completest view of the peripatetic filmmaker’s late work, as Huppert gamely journeys from her family’s trout farm into the sexual predations of Tokyo and Paris high life.
