Uneventful film, redeemed by good photography and actress
I just watched this film on tape from a recent Channel 4 broadcast in the UK. I guess it's the ideal French film, as it has all the right ingredients -- relationships, cigarettes, dingy apartments, garish apartments -- and it's mainly in English!
However, I felt like speeding it up all the way through. I could go make a cup of tea and nothing would have happened while I was gone.
It was redeemed by bright, clear photography of Paris, and some lovely close-ups of the delicious Elodie Bouchez. I only give it 5, I'm afraid. Pleasant enough, but the Gaga character really irritated me and it was soooo sloooow.
