Xavier is now thirty. No longer a student, he is not yet a well-balanced, fulfilled adult either. His career is unsatisfying: Far from being the renowned novelist he aimed to be he must be content with little jobs such as reporter or ghost writer. His greatest "achievement" in "literature" is his collaboration to the script of a corny TV soap! His sentimental life is not much better, rhythmed by one night stands and unfinished romances. It looks as if when he seduces a woman beautiful outside and inside such as Kassia or Wendy he can't keep them. Will he ever bring his life into focus? Written by
The Kookai store where Cassia works is at 155, Rue de Rennes in the 6th arrondissement of Paris. See more »
In the stylized sequence in which Xavier imagines he is following Célia in the "Street with Perfect Proportions," the shadows don't match: The shots on Celia show almost no shadows, but in shots on Xavier, the street is almost completely in shadows. See more »
I know you're not always perfect. I know you have tons of problems, defects, imperfections... but who doesn't? It's just that I prefer your problems. I'm in love with your imperfections. Your imperfections are just great!
I know most girls they get weak on their knees for what's beautiful, you know, that's all they see, that's all they want. But I'm not like that. I don't just see what's beautiful. I fall for the other stuff. I love what's not perfect. It's just how I am.

In the opening credits, each main character is portrayed with both a scene from the current movie and from the original one, 'L'Auberge Espagnole (2003)'. See more »
Xavier is 30 years old. He became a writer but seems a little lost. He is trying hard to settle and having one love adventure after another thoughtlessly. For a scenario writing job, he goes to London to work in collaboration with Wendy.
After the "Auberge Espagnole", Cédric Klapisch shows his talents again directing great actors such as Romain Duris, Audrey Tautou and Kelly Reilly.
When the movie was over, I thought that it was one of the best love stories I've ever seen. Each situation makes us think about ourselves and our own problems.
