Almost surrealistic, almost good
26 August 2002 | by (Wellington, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Left bank Paris as a backdrop, seduction, love and sex among young philosophizing students, a shrink... that is all too banal to be great.

Nevertheless the movie manages to create an atmosphere all to itself, a sense of mystery yet a predictable one,... some kind of witchcraft perhaps ? Actors act naturally, Jean-Pierre Léaud is himself, as usual, Amalric is bewildered by sexuality, Melvil Poupaud is a dark soul (not very funny as his grand mother puts it !) and Chiara Mastroiani is very Parisian, both brittle and charming.

Nothing is too serious, not even life since it seems so easy to get away with murder. There is undoubtably a whiff of witchcraft in the Latin Quarter.
