*** 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.
