Quintessential French cinema, Betty Blue is the uninhibited and tumultuous story of an obsessive relationship that descends into madness. Zorg, an aspiring novelist who gets by as a handyman at a dilapidated beach resort, is happy with his life until he meets Betty; beautiful, wild and unpredictable. Life with Betty becomes a carnival ride filled with prolific sex and increasingly madcap adventures, until Betty’s mental state turns dark. Based on the novel by Philippe Dijan the film introduced the effervescent Beatrice Dalle to the world accompanied by the handsomely attributed Jean-Hugues Anglade.
Betty Blue: The Director’s Cut features an additional 60 minutes of footage from the version shown previously in US theaters. The characters of Zorg and Betty are more fully realized, with the leads’ performances and the voluptuous, early days of their relationship fleshed out in more detail. Betty’s crossover from obsessive passion to full-on emotional breakdown is more fully depicted and this version gives more screen time to the secondary characters who add a sense celebration and wild abandon with plenty of extremely funny moments along the way. A darker and even more memorable ride.
