The choral film genre is pretty difficult to make. The script needs to be very sharp to justify such a choice. Here, it only is an excuse to see different actors playing different characters, with one main theme in common: loneliness.
First problem: all the actor are not so good: Vincent Lindon is, in my opinion, really bad like usual; Bacri is, as usual, really great; Pooelveorde is funny, but that's all, and the other's are OK.
Second problem: the systematization of the film making. Garcia shoot in 2.35, a choice I cannot understand for that kind of movie. She alternates "low-fi" movement and stabilized, clean pan, but empty.
Third problem: a terrible use of the music. They are totally inappropriate, and their use are useless.
