Mean Magazine: Kate as Anna





Kate Beckinsale as French New Wave babe Anna Karina. Chances are, if you are already familiar with this movie you may have spent time in film school taking Citizen Kane classes and discussing Terrence Malick films and of course, carrying on about Italian Neo-Realism vs. the French New Wave (ok, I guess that was mostly me and like 100 of my friends in college, great, a lot of good that did). Anyway, if you are or were a film geek at any point, you would probably agree that .... even though Kate looks lovely, she is missing that 60's French vixen who is sultry purely by accident thing that Anna has ..... team Anna!

I haven't seen the film, though I am a fast-on-my-way-to-being-a-film-buff candidate. Kate does look lovely though. Especially in the first picture.

I think French New Wave is fascinating, but I honestly don't know too much about it. Lovely post, though. (:

That is Kate??!

Kate is trying too hard and is way too sexy in a kind of sleazy way. Anna is just naturally adorable and that's where her sex appeal comes from. Kate's hair does look fierce, though.

Best Kate has ever looked?! I think so.

Kate looks sexy, but I don't think she quite pulls it off. Great idea though!

Oh, poor Kate, I just don't think she's got it. At all.
