Nice French humoristic drama
5 December 2003 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Really a French movie: a light, humoristic but dramatic film. Shot with a bit of irony, especially with the music they used, but they really touched the dramatic side as well. In short, the movie is about four characters with some really relational, emotional and sexual problems/frustrations. They don't know each other but they meet during the film in various ways, not knowing that they actually know each other. Only the public finds out.

Every individual has his own frustration and you can see that that really takes all the energy away from all of them and that this isn't the first time they have relational problems. Though the idea of projecting just one day of the character's life (left out a very few flashbacks) is great, the story doesn't develop as much as you hope it's gonna be. That is shame, the director could just add a bit more of a surprising or satisfying plot to it and it was really worth an 8. Still a good movie to watch, especially when you like the French way of filming. 7/10.
