You doing okay?
Yeah, I'm a Buddhist now.
Then you're doing fine. What's that involve?
Lots of meditation... You've gotta work toward enlightment, nothingness.
Yes, all of this positive energy is exhausting.

This is the story of a woman, played by Audrey Tautou, who searches for herself by searching for a religion she can relate to. She tries all of the major religions and ends up with Judaism when she starts to data Francois, who is lapsed in his faith.
Her spiritual quest drives her, Francois and ME crazy. I tend to like character and plot-driven movies, but it is important that I relate to the character in some way. There was no one with whom I could relate.
From a technical point-of-view there are positives and negatives. I rented this movie primarily because I enjoy Audrey Tautou's acting. She is talented and exceptionally charming. In that, this movie lived up to my expectations. Her acting and that of the other case members is quite well done. Unfortunately, the direction and editing aren't quite as good. There are a lot of very short scenes that are distracting and don't seem to advance the story.
By no means is this a bad movie, but unless you can relate to a spiritual journey more than me, this movie probably won't quite do it for you.
