Don't rush: Waiting a life is the exact time you should take before to see this movie (DVD)
4 November 2006 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

A first movie about an indecisive man in his sentimental choices: if all the actors & actresses deliver an excellent composition, the movie is a long boredom because of its paradoxical story: In my opinion, if you love someone, you are passionate.

In this movie, I can't identify to this belief: First, I don't understand how can Bruel feel more than one love: he seems to need the both women to have one "complete" wife.

Then, he shows no sincere passion for any of them: he keeps on stepping back with them: he will be a father of one but he remains still; he leaves on vacation with the other but they quit without words...

Sure it's hard to build a relationship, but the foundations are always clear & strong: true & sincere feelings and a leap of faith: Maybe I should see this movie like an illustration of the consequences of this lack of commitment but it doesn't mean it should be so dull!!!!
