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 »

Who is she?
No - my ex, Martine.
Not so "ex."
She's my ex. It's over. Come in.
One in, one out... That doesn't bother you at all.
You don't understand.
You just line 'em up and don't give a fuck.
Exactly. If you don't like it, take a hike.
Yeah! You're all fucking, stupid bitches! You got that? Now get lost!

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 »
OK, i loved L'auberge Espagnole so my expectations were high. I didn't know what to expect even though after having read some of the reviews and opinions on here i knew i was in for some good 2 hours.
And it really was good. The good thing about it is that it's not a remake of the first one. While some will probably miss the whole mixing of nationalities, we can enjoy the fact that the characters are more developed, the story is in the continuity of the first one, and some references are made to L'auberge, but they seem natural.
The girls are beautiful,(Xavier is a really lucky guy), the English girl playing Wendy is even more beautiful than in the first one and the fact that we travel so much during this film is the cherry on the cake.
For a very good moment, go see this one.
