Storyline

In Paris, Ariane and Lena are sisters. Ariane writes photo novellas for the magazine "Toi et Moi." She's emotional and her long-time boyfriend, Farid, has her in a state because he won't propose, won't ask her to live with him, and often is unavailable. Lena is a cellist, quiet and circumspect in life and in her playing. She lives without passion with her boyfriend François; they're talking about having a baby. Suddenly the women have options: a cheerful and outgoing Spanish construction worker pays attention to Ariane, and Lena finds herself attracted to Mark, a passionate soloist leaving soon to play in Asia. What will the women - and men - do? Is life like a photo novella? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Toi et moi
24 February 2007 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

The movie is based on an usual triangle or maybe an unusual polygon if the male characters are included in the count. It is a straightforward telling of what happens in the life of two sisters in their late twenties more or less except... and the except is that along with real life, we see the fantasied versions of events as the older sister, a romance writer, imagines them. The use of a stage set background for the fantasies sets them apart from the real events in the sisters' lives.

Although technically, the movie is very straightforward, the use of music -- the younger sister is a cellist -- heightens almost every scene. A male violin soloist becomes part of the younger sister's real and imagined life (her fantasies are not made visible) and in fact knowing him changes her life in a way she doesn't expect. I keep thinking about the paradoxical but plausible view of her situation. Maybe the older sister's destiny is less plausible but, hey, the movie is billed as a comedy.
