This movie is a bit too slow and teary eyed to appeal to most people in my humble opinion. I was never really bored nor interested, just sitting there watching people trying to straighten out their messy love life. Lots of silences, actors thinking on screen, looking as if they really cared ... sorry, I'm a bit too cynical !
Most of the actors only give ordinary performances ... Louise Portal sounds a bit phony in parts as if she is reciting her lines (but she ain't the only one unfortunately !) ... I was often reminded of "The decline of the american empire" but that one is a much better film of course.
This film however is very formulaic and predictable so it is less interesting as I could see the plot twists coming really easily.
Les amoureuses could appeal more to older folks as my parents saw it and highly recommended it to me ... I can't say I have the same opinion though... only 2.5/5 for me !
