My 1st review of a French movie (TV)
21 August 2005 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

*** I am french, so this statistic is a good benchmark, after 31 movies, to review the quality of my country… Or my personal taste… ***

Proper of a good actress (or actor) is to make interesting a bad film, and here is a classic example.

A non-existent scenario: the plot is without surprises and holds on a postage stamp so I would not risk to summarize. You'll watch a succession of more or less successful scenes, where the camera follow each detail of fear of not having enough of footage. Some characters are foolish: why the boss, why the boyfriend in Japan, if there isn't any development...

If the director wanted make a point with the nonsense of Irene's life, the contract is more than largely filled. In short, nothing to put under the tooth

EXCEPT... that Cecile De France is a very talented actress. She illuminates each scene. All the emotions are in her partition. Change Cécile, and this film would have had least notoriety.

In conclusion, the only quality of this bad movie is to introduce a new arrival in the cinematographic landscape, and all the bad movies can't say that much…
