Great film, natural light
12 December 1999 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

This is a beautifully shot film with a french script that's human and personal, comical, ironic, subliminally absurd and slavic. Personal stories intertwine with a comic hotel plot to take care of a special guest, the party auditor. Purposes cross and the auditor is turned on his head.

The film is often in natural light, preserving the feeling of the locations.
