This turkey is just another French highbrow movie. But this one is THE highbrow movie ! BHL (the director) is known in France as a philosopher but not a great one. And his movie is just as I expected. The plot is stupid and sometimes laughable, there is a lot of sex scenes, the actors are absolutely awful. But I gotta tell that above all, I didn't understand anything. I suppose there is a big metaphysical meaning hidden in the movie, but sorry I didn't catch it.
Le Jour et la nuit is one of the worst French movie I've ever seen. You should see it.
