Well-plotted, fine performances
6 January 2004 | by (Taichung, Taiwan) – See all my reviews

I have seen all each film in Lucas Belvaux's of inter-connected, multi-genre trilogy, and like this light, romantic comedy the best. The plot and performances are the strengths of this work. Each twist and turn, every mis-understanding and each instance of wrongful identity ratchet up the comic tension, and we are presented with solid work by each of the ensemble of fine actors. I like, too, that though the film is farcical, it is also realistic and sometimes messy and threatening in its import, reminding us that moments of grace and acts of kindness are not inevitable and must be (or ought to be) appreciated and acknowledged in each and every case. In other words, this is not a sappy love story. I believed that the characters cared for one another. I am surprised that others have not responded as positively to this film as I have; perhaps it hit me the right way on the right day. I agree that seeing all three films enriches the experiences of each. I saw them in order, but I don't think that matters much.
