Storyline

7 a.m. Catherine receives a phone call from someone called Kirsch. This untimely call throws her into a great state of agitation, which she takes out on her boyfriend, Raphaël. Upset, in turn, Raphaël fights with his employer and even succeeds in getting himself fired. To excuse himself for his early morning call, Kirsch decides to send Catherine a bouquet of flowers, which, in Catherine's absence, winds up with her neighbors Alice and Antoine. The bouquet will go from hand to hand, setting off all manner of mistakes, misunderstanding and misinterpretations. The bouquet is the catalyst of a multitude of insignificant events, which reveal the whimsy of our lives today. Written by Aline

Delightful with some profoundness
4 January 2003 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

This is a very enjoyable movie although I consider it a bit inferior to Labrune's previous one, "Ca ira mieux demain". There's been obviously much effort spent on writing the dialogues, the humor is mainly based on language, words being taken literally, in a sort of "absurd logic". Sandrine Kiberlain is great, as usual. And don't miss Thierry Mugler's creations for Dominique Blanc !
