Every french director would like to be the next Eric Rohmer, but most don't live up to that standard ... this is no exception. The movie completely misses the right ruthm and the purity of rohmer's movies. The dialogue-driven plot gets interrupted way to eften by dreary flashbacks that keep dragging the film down. It's not really bad, but it's of no significance at all.
