Sometimes charming, sometimes annoying, Camille is a carefree "modern girl" who seem to have a tendency to bump into people and objects. So she lives alone, and spends her time with a bunch of friends or lovers of mixed sexual inclinations, until she bumps (physically) into the man of her life, who really has nothing to do with her. "La Nouvelle Eve" is a more humorous than usual comedy in that oh so French tradition of "who do I really love" movies. The setting is very classical (Parisian thirtysomething artists who have nothing else in their minds than sex and its related complications) and follows the pattern of most comedies of this kind. However, the movie is fun, fast, and is propelled by the energetic Karin Viard, one of the best French actresses of the new generation.
