Anna has just left Paul who, annihilated by the separation, moves back with his father in Paris. His younger brother Jonathan, a casual student, still lives in his father's apartment and spends most of his time womanizing and fooling around.

In one scene of the film, where Jonathan walks in front of the cinema, two movie posters are shown. One is for A History of Violence (2005), a film which was also released in cinemas in France via the same distributor as this film. The other is for Last Days (2005) starring Michael Pitt, who co-starred with Louis Garrel in The Dreamers (2003). See more »
This movie is very, very dull. I think for a movie that deals with loss, love, families and death it is incredibly cold and not involving with standard acting and too much irrelevant dialogue. I can not understand other comments about deep philosophical meaning and original approach - it is not a Hollywood rom-com, but it is very very shallow and banal (love ends, families are families, honest talking is difficult). There are a few moments that are just irritating and pointless (the song over the telephone, jumping in the Seine, successfully chatting up girls in the street)
It is not a good movie and it is not a bad one - it is just very forgettable
