Indie Grindhouse Noir Film 'Like a Dirty French Novel' Official Trailer
"Am I making you nervous? While I touch myself?" Blvd De Cinema Productions has revealed an official trailer for a low budget indie film described as a "grindhouse noir" called Like a Dirty French Novel. Which, I must say, is a pretty clever title for this. The tagline states it's "between the absurd and the vulgar" which is also somewhat tantalizing. The film follows a number of interesting characters: a sexually-charged mysterious phone operator, two estranged twin brothers, and a cosplaying femme fatale. Starring Jennifer Daley, Robby Valls, Miles Dougal, Brittany Samson, and Amanda Viola. The trailer says there's "five noir-tinged chapters" in this film, which runs 78 minutes in total. This looks as mediocre as expected, with a few interesting shadowy shots, but there's not much else to see in here. Unless you're really into noir.
Here's the official trailer (+ posters) for Mike Cuenca's Like a Dirty French Novel, from YouTube:
