To celebrate his wedding anniversary, Jean-Pierre buy her partner an English bulldog of 4 months "Trésor". Nathalie is delighted and engaged in a deep and loving relationship with the pet. But having a pet at home brings difficulties.
The film was shown in the Istanbul Film Festival 2006. As I'm a fan of French movies I was thrilled to see Claude Berri's 2005 film. The classical plot is elaborately woven but its not including any real suspense or surprise. The most prominent feature which is shared by each character is their loneliness and lack of true happiness or deep feeling for anything or anyone. The individualism so characteristic of the postmodern world keeps them reserved, self-centered, self-absorbed
that is selfish and uncaring. The strange thing is, this is not
considered abnormal because it's shared by everyone. Besides the one who stays is not so very different from the one who stays and the reasons of their different choices are not revealed to us. So we don't feel relieved or disturbed that either one "reste or part".Whatsoever the great actors and actresses can be an excuse to see the film.
