Definitely the best film I have seen this year so far. Two exes meet up in the supermarket and invite their new families on holiday. More friends turn up. They all live in a beautiful countryside house, they're on holiday, the weather is sunny, the kids are cute, there is good food and good wine, everything seems to be just perfect... But the confrontation of all these so-called "friends" and of their different ways of living reveals frustration, sadness, fear, hatred! The two exes realize they still love each other (or is it just the will to escape from their lives?) and that they have just taken the wrong train and are wasting their time and lives! They have built the perfect image of happiness, not the one they wanted, but the one social clichés imposes on all of us (stability, wedding, kids...). The eternal fight between reason and passion, between the mind and the heart! All actors do a great job, lines are just excellent, a layer of funny words on bitter themes... Very very funny, smart, touching and not boring at all, go and see it, films of this quality are too rare to be missed!!!
