Bridges and roofs are high enough for jumpers:
Girl on the Bridge appears as the English title by which the 2008-released DVD of the French comedy-drama La fille sur le pont of 1999 is known. The black-and-white romance begins with Adèle (Vanessa Paradis) monologuing an off-screen psychologist. Two months before her birthday, the twenty-one-year-old considers:
• dependency upon parents the holding tank of a girl whose existence relates meaningfulness with a high school dropout on an emancipated love-making spree; and
• independence, through 15+-minute stands, the waiting room where all lasting luck happens to life's other passengers.
Adèle describes as facilitating casual lust with an anesthesiologist, judge, manager, and psychologist and obstructing permanent love:
• impulsiveness; and
• inability to say no to deceitful male hands, looks, and words.
