Four funny, revealing stories of dissolving relationships, 8 March 2003
Author: ALB ( from Philadelphia, USA

This romantic comedy is probably one of the very few to focus on the dissolution of relationships.

Using the format of interview segments spliced with flashbacks, several stories unfold: older woman seduces younger man; professor pursues student; extremely attractive woman pairs with insecure man, etc.

Showing the views of the two partners back to back reveals how the same events can look differently to the two participants. The juxtaposition is revealing, and quite funny in several instances. At a screening in Philadelphia, viewers were asked whether the film seemed optimistic or pessimistic. The nearly evenly divided response seems exactly what writer-director Eric Assous intended.
