What I like about French movies is that they're not afraid to appear dated and/or look old fashioned. Here we have three of their best - Nathalie Baye, Jean-Pierre Bacri and Isabelle Carre ringing the changes on our old friend adultery. In a nutshell Bacri and Baye are an item until Carre and her husband move next door. Against all the odds Carre leaps into bed with Bacri, end of several beautiful friendships. That's it really but it's HOW it's done that makes it worth seeing. With a bit of luck this one will come to England Baye and Baye and if it does guess who'll be there with bells on. 7/10
