Melancholic beauty
19 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

Well, the movie title says it all. It's about a rather introvert boy named Raoul who is looking for a woman to love. He tries to find her on parties, or in everyday situations, or by calling girls he met long ago, just to mention a few attempts. His success varies, but is generally limited.

The story starts at no particular point in the life of Raoul, and it might continue like this beyond the end of the movie. Somehow watching this movie is like watching the flow of a river: There is no climax and no anticlimax, and no exciting events - a pleasant difference from common sad love stories. However, since many people are used to such kind of movie I suppose that they will find this story very boring. To these people, the movie is not recommended.

The actors are convincing, and Julien Collet is just brilliant. He might be just the boy next door who is trying hard to find a girlfriend. The director did a good job as well; there are no technical or stylistic flaws. Overall, it's really a sound melancholic, romantic drama.
