Bad, very bad...
9 January 2010 | by (Capital, Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

If you want to become crazy, this may be your film. If you want to see how bad modern French cinema has become, this is definitely your thing. Agnes Jaoui's films look natural in comparison :). Also if you want to make sure how good actors make bad films everywhere, not only in Hollywood.

I agree with IMDb's "eyal philippsborn" that "less is more" with respect to "the abundance of sub-plots, characters and endless slightly hallucinatory dialogue". I don't think that the time in which one watches it makes a different, this flick is too bad to be influenced by such subtle tings :). Dialogues here are not just "lengthy", they're just unbelievable, theatrical in the bad sense, and utterly nonsensical. I watch French films almost daily, so I think I know the slow tempos and unusual everything of European movies! It's been a long time since I have watched a film that is SO bad. Amazon's "Shayad" is right that "it is made for small screen viewing".

There is no plot. It looks like the notes Charlotte jots while the world goes on around her. If you are about or just moving, this film is interesting, in the sense it shows how stressing it can become, "what it could do to you" :). But if people would be half as authentic as in this film, every meeting would be so interesting... All potential buyers speak their mind out like if they were in the middle of a session with their long term therapist. They speak about their inner fears with a total stranger, just the contrary of what real Parisians do. Just a few examples: the mother speaks a lot about "chicken", both of them use a vacuum cleaner that only emits smoke, Charlotte is obsessed with "double curtains", (among other things), new apartments reek, small suitcases are very important, and the list could go on. Their experience at the land and reflections about farm animals was just too much. Basically everything is crazy in a way that's not even funny. Their speaking about the Holocaust wasn't that light in my opinion. But I don't see how it would matter so much for a "third generation" as they call young people here.

Sylvie Testud is a superb actress, it shows with a script that would sink even the best of actors.

Avoid it, or watch it with company while eating a good chicken :). I don't ever want to move in my life :)!
