Can't win them all, Matt
29 May 2003 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

I went to see this on the strength of Matthieu Amalric's name, since he was so good in 'Comment Je Me Suis Dispute (Ma Vie Sexuelle)', one of my favourite French films of the '90s... and I can't say I was very impressed. A romantic comedy that doesn't make one believe in or feel the slightest chemistry between the two leads is hardly a winning proposition... I was especially disappointed when I saw Michel Piccoli's name in the credits at the end, and realised that he must have made his appearance during one of the several points that I was asleep! Better luck next time, Matt...
