ICON BASES: La belle personne  
I'm back, bearing bases. And alliteration.

This time, it's a metric fuckton of icon bases of the movie "La belle personne".
There are two categories: 1. A giant hodgepodge of bases, not ordered; and 2. a smaller set, ordered by the film's timing.
This will be very unfriendly to slower computers. Tons of images, no regrets. (Also, in a couple of the bases, it is a little NSFW.)

· 124 unordered
· 40 ordered


download them here.

(I will probably upload and put all the images into
this post later, once I am more awake.)

ETA: Bases!

124 unordered





















40 ordered







Also, can I really, really recommend Malionette's Icon Table Generator? Because I do. Usually dealing with icon tables (read: icon table generating sites. i no HTML.) makes me crazy nervous, plus I don't always like how it looks. (Go back in this LJ and you'll see I definitely don't use the same site every time.) Once I entered a 20in20 icon challenge and practically had a mini panic attack.
But yeah, this site is pretty awesome. Just the bare bones, and it's crazy easy to use.
Yeah, ok.

It gave me a creepy feeling and the love plot came to an end for no good reason. I really thought it was going to be my cup of tea, too. But I don't know. It just didn't sit with me right. The whole movie put me on edge. Maybe if it had been set at a university, with older students, but the character (Junie) was about 16 and it was secondary/high school. For some reason, I am ok with that in fanfiction, but when it flies in a movie, to me that kind of implies that the director is totally ok with it IRL? Unless the film seems to be made to point out how its events are just not ok, which is often the case....

The actors are gorgeous though. There's even a secondary m/m love plot, which was pretty cool. No one gets their happy love ending in this BTW. Angst angst angst pretty-looking angst. So yeah.

Interesting. I've had it on my list of things to watch for quite a while, because of Louis Garrel, and that other guy who was in Les Chansons D'amour. But I don't really know that much about it. Hmm. I'll have to let you know what I think.

And I'll prepare myself for the angst! I feel like so few of the movies I've watched lately have had happy endings, and I always end up hoping for one, so that's a helpful warning.

I watched it and I think I get what you mean now. The atmosphere was just kind of off, wasn't it? I kind of liked the fact that the love plot ended the way it did because it felt more realistic and was less creepy that way, but you're right - there was no real indication from the movie that Nemours was doing anything wrong.

Everyone was definitely ridiculously pretty though, oh my god. Have you seen Les Chansons D'amour? It's the same director and the majority of the cast is the same as well, and it's SO good.

Glad I'm not the only one who felt weird from the film. And I couldn't even keep track of names here. Nemours? Pshh. Professor Louis Garrel in my mind. I think (I can't remember...it was a while ago) I knew the names of Junie and her cousin and almost-boyfriend. That was it.

I haven't seen Les Chansons but I've heard of it. I remember the bisexual love triangle interested me, but more than that — I read that it had a (sort of, quasi-) polyamorous relationship with two women and a guy, but without the getting-it-past-the-radar cop-out of making it a crazy-dysfunctional, self-destructive on all sides kind of relationship. (Or that was the impression I got. Was it just treated as normal and everyday without being addressed too much? IDK.) And then the one woman dies, the others part and ol Louis falls in love with a man? And it's a musical? Which, bahahah, could that be any more queer if it tried? :D (theatre family person over here. trust me i don't mean it as disparaging. but that would be obvious....) I guess if they took it to the stage as a musical then it would be.

PROFESSOR LOUIS GARREL. That was basically what I was calling him in my head, too. I actually had to check IMDB for the character name, ngl.

Les Chansons D'amour is seriously amazing. It does have a bisexual love triangle thing going on, and the way it's treated is so lovely and respectful and realistic. It's not like OMG KINKY THREESOME or, like you said, totally dysfunctional and messed up. Yeah, you've got the rest of the plot right, too. The way the film handles the relationships in general is awesome - Louis's character falling for a man is so well-done, there's no HE WAS GAY ALL ALONG AND IN DENIAL!! and the reason he angsts over it is more because of his grief for his dead girlfriend and the fact that the guy is quite a bit younger. It's just a really refreshing outlook, idk. And yeah, it's a musical! Which put me off at first, but that part is done really cleverly as well and it never feels too cheesy. I recommend it wholeheartedly. :D
