2.5 stars

6/10
Author: Mike Weston (mweston) from Silicon Valley, CA
18 April 2002

This is the third in a trilogy of Dogme95 films, with the other two being "Lovers" and "Too Much Flesh." In this one, Maxime arrives in Paris and demonstrates himself to be a very simple man who does not seem to have even a basic grasp of normal societal customs. His goal is to go to India to find Justine (played by Élodie Bouchez, who has much less screen time here than she did in the other two films). Maxime's unlikely companion in this quest is Jack, an American businessman (played by the co-director, Jean-Marc Barr, who played the main character in "Too Much Flesh").

This film's naive story reminded me a bit of "Being There," with the simple character providing much of the wisdom. It was entertaining throughout and was well paced. As is often the case with Dogme95 films, the production values were quite low. Seen at Cinequest (the San Jose, CA film festival) on 2/23/2002.
