What a fun little movie to watch!
10 April 2006 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I had much fun seeing this during Cinéfranco, the French film festival of Toronto. The story is very simple, but it works. After 12 years together, a couple pretends, during a family picnic, that they're breaking up. Just for fun, just to see how people will react. And the reactions are not exactly the one they were expecting to hear. Will it have an impact on their future together? And there's that Serge Hatier guy. Will he take advantage of the situation? Lots of subtle humor in this one. The actors are all good. I'm a fan of Sandrine Kiberlain and she delivers a very solid performance again in this movie. And it's only the second film I see starring Yvan Attal (first one was "Le Prof"), but I'm pleasantly surprised.

Seen in Toronto, at the Royal Cinema, during Cinéfranco, on April 9th, 2006.

79/100 (***)
