Storyline

Remake of Jules et Jim following the experiences over a decade of two friends who fall in love with the same woman, enjoyably satirising the 70's through the search by the three protagonists for their identities and making sharp attacks on cultural signposts of the decade along the way. The film also studies relationships, what its director calls "wanting something permanent yet wanting to be free". Written by Rixer <rixer@radsoft.net>

Dated, superficial, boring unimaginative drivel.

The worst 'acid' trip I've ever seen. Boring people who are always pretending to be stoned or drunk. Margot has the worst southern accent ever, it pretty well sums up everything about this movie.
