Storyline

Three days in the lives of six friends who are nearly 30 years old, live in Grenoble, and have a rock band called the "Why Notes?". They're to play in Paris at Charles's school reunion. In getting to Paris and back, the characters interact with Aimee's ex-husband and her abrasive, cruel ex-mentor, Louise's would-be lover who turns out to have a husband, Mickey's long-time lover and her children, Bertrand's Germanic wife and their children who speak no French, and Frederic's distant mother. The band also meets Clara, a mercurial free spirit who beguiles Bertrand, then Mickey, then takes up with someone else in the band. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Pleasent but nothing special.
20 December 1998 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

Cute but dumb comedy drama about French new wave band with questionable talent and their adventures en route to playing a gig in Paris. Isabelle Adjani has little more than an extended cameo and is used similarly to how Suzanne Sommers in American Graffiti and Bo Derek in 10 were employed. It's not hard to see why this one never got a US release.
