Isn't it ironic?
7 July 2000 | by (Bxl, Belgium) – See all my reviews

Yes it is.

He has lost his job and takes care of the household and the baby. She is a director at an English language school and has an affair with her first lover. It's a linear story with an inevitable ending, told with eye for detail and with humour. Although the story and setting are not new, it has a surprising ending, which is emphasized by the words 'happy end'.
