French love story vs. cool Japanese Setting
20 December 1999 | by (Erlangen, Germany) – See all my reviews

When I saw the first scenes I had other Japanese movies ( e.g. Hanabi ) in my mind. I was somewhat disappointed because this is a French love film more like "Salt on our Skin" or Episodes of the Three Colors Trilogy. This means no violence, no action. In the end I came to like the film for exactly this fact.

My recommendation: watch this film with the one you love, so you have got something to do during the lengthy parts.
