This movie is simply the product of a humor's genius
This movie is simply the product of a genius. If you watch it in french without understanding it, if you don't like Beckett-like plots, if you don't like Paris, if you are looking for a-story-that-works this is not for you. This was the first film i saw by Sophie Fillières -avant prèmiere at the Cinémathéque francaise- and I bet she's to Paris what Allen is to Manhattan. It's too early to say, but i hope she won't deceive us. Dialogs are amazing, situations are paradoxical, even the soundtrack is exactly what it has to be (she said it was too expensive, but et the end she kept it). A smart comedy as you won't find a lot in Europe.
