A fine example of sensitive and charming French cinema
25 August 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Julien and Emma have lost their mother a year ago and live with their father. He is in love with the beautiful Olga who works in a bookstore. Too shy to approach her he dreams of caressing her and even gets a friend to assist in an elaborate (and rather amusing) subterfuge to win her. The characters try to rebuild themselves through a series of mistakes where the nuances of everyday language and gesture is misunderstood and moral high grounds challenged. A beautiful, subtle and altogether charming and delightful film.
