Not much more than a tedious cigarette add
5 January 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The story is about a stupidly indulgent young man who is virtually inured to the pain of those who love him simply because he will not grow up. The acting is excellent, the boy playing Greg is particularly good. However, the endless cigarette smoking (surely even the French don't light up as often as the leads in his film) is exasperating in this frustrating and often tedious film. Unless the audience has considerable sympathy for characters like Thomas, the time spent watching the film is wasted. Watching attractive people with their whole lives in front of them drink, sniff coke and generally over indulge themselves is boring, boring, boring. Even the ambiguous ending offers little in the way of hope or redemption.
