Wow, it seems like I am going to be the first to comment on this movie... Well, I saw it in Los Angeles and it was followed by the meeting with the director Jean-Pierre Améris. In a middle of this meeting, the French interpreter suddenly broke into the tears and quit. Do I sound like it is a depressing film? Actually, it is not a miserable morbid melodrama, when you may take it to the heart as long as you watch it, but you forget it after it is over and go home happy. Instead of playing the traditional role of the cinema as a total escape from reality, C'est La Vie is inevitably perceived as a story of your own life. The screenplay, the direction and acting are very good and by the way, there were excellent amateur actors playing in this movie and some of them must have already passed away... Life consists of years, days and seconds - and you don't want to waste time. If you spend a couple of hours of your life on this drama, you will feel like it was worth it!
