The Blue Room (2014)

IMDb plot summary: A man and a woman, secretly in love, alone in a room. They desire each other, want each other, and even bite each other. In the afterglow, they share a few sweet nothings. At least the man seemed to believe they were nothing. Now under investigation by the police and the courts, what is he accused of?
Directed by Mathieu Amalric. Starring Mathieu Amalric, Léa Drucker, Stéphanie Cléau, and Laurent Poitrenaux.

For such a short movie, this dragged on FOREVER. It is slow and blah and doesn't have any kind of interesting narrative and isn't told interestingly and there's really nothing to recommend it. When it takes you days to watch a 75-minute movie because it's so dull you keep falling asleep in the middle of it, that's not a good sign. I really don't have anything else to say about it. I'm going to move on to talking about better movies.

0.5 stars.
