‘Little White Lies’ starts with a big bang and ends with a whole lot of whimpering

Little White Lies

Director: Guillaume Canet

Written by  Guillaume Canet

France, 2010

Guillaume Canet’s Little White Lies starts with a big bang and ends with a whole lot of whimpering. The third feature from the director of Tell No One promised to be undemanding fun, accompanied by that veneer of French sophistication you don’t find in Jennifer Aniston movies.  A bunch of affluent, self-obsessed Parisians on a beach holiday also sounds like material that’s just ripe for a Hollywood makeover. But it turns out that Canet’s film is a remake – a homage if you prefer – to that Baby Boomer classic, The Big Chill. The bad news is that Canet’s film runs to an extravagant 154 minutes. As the lachrymose finale dragged on and on, I’m afraid I almost lost the will to live.

The bravura opening gives no hint of the cinematic car crash that follows. »
