As a Houellebecq enthusiast I saw this movie with great expectations. Unfortunately, it is not as enjoyable as the movie Elementarteilchen - which is colorful, beautiful and bitter-sweet funny even as it deals with the same subjects - the voice-overs on this movie is boring as hell and there's little to no action on screen. It's more a guided reading trought Houellebecq text than a real movie. The actor playing Our Hero is not ironic, intelligent and cynical as the character on the book, he too looks boring as hell. 2 hours of this movie isn't worth reading 15minutes of any chapter on the book. The tone is all wrong. Avoid.
