This movie came with perfect timing. I was currently viewing really awful movies and this was a welcome break. Characters were so well-developed, it almost feels like if I go to France, I will meet Jeff, Antoine, Manu or Alex on the streets. Everything was so simple but it touched the heart. That's why this movie works! Because it shows how life that's so simple can become complicated through the choices we make.
Dialogue is also very witty and natural. Direction was superb. It was amazing how he can make a scene where the four of them simply stare off at the beach from a simple one to an emotion-filled scene. Superb acting from all of the actors. Everything was done nicely. I was so sad when the end credits rolled. I wanted more! I guess I'll just have to wait for more movies from Esposito.
