Cast, sets and music : excellent
4 September 1999 | by (montreal) – See all my reviews

Slow at first then the plot livens up. The cast is excellent. Very funny. Beautifully directed. No apparent special effects to distract you from the plot. The underlying message is clear and plausible. It even makes you wonder... I enjoyed every character, all location sets and the music from Alain Bashung.
