[DVD Review] Toi et Moi

1 December 2009 8:00 AM, PST | | See recent JustPressPlay news »

I’m a pretty die-hard rom-com fan. You’ve Got Mail, Never Been Kissed, 27 Dresses, pretty much any movie Hugh Grant did after 1998, are all favorites. Something about laughing and crying at the same time wildly appeals to me, along with thousands of other twenty-something women.

I cannot, however, quite get my head around movies that throw drama into the mix (dromantic-comedies?). Melodrama (melodromantic-comedies? I just can't stop myself...), sure — afterall, what's any decent picture without a little over(re)acting?

Toi et Moi revolves around two sisters: one, Lena (Marion Cotillard), a somewhat timid but beautiful cellist; the other, Ariane, (Julie Depardieu), a somewhat beautiful but loony photo-novelist. Sadly I found myself better able to relate to Ariane, who lives in her head, entertaining wild fantasies (that often translate into her work) about her lackluster relationship with Farid (Tomer Sisley), and that of Lena and her kind of lame »
