This is a French film that's decent but won't exactly knock your socks off. It is a slow-moving film, too slow overall for most people's tastes including mine in this instance.
The three guys and their respective love affairs are at least somewhat interesting, but the time spent on these judges and their love stories is so tedious it's beyond boredom.
Marie-Sophie Lelouch, the wife the man who directed this film had a really pretty face that I enjoyed admiring. That, and clean language throughout the story, have my thanks, but little else in here is worthy of much praise.
Somewhere in here was a minor crime story but basically, this film is all talk, talk, talk and more talk, and you keep waiting for something to happen.....anything! The translation of this title to English sums up the movie: "All this....for just that?" That's the way I felt after watching this snooze-fest, or as Peggy Lee immortalized in song, "Is That All There Is?"
