Storyline

Three story-lines run in parallel in a town in Ile de France. Louis, a divorced café proprietor, flirts with every woman he bumps into, but doesn't develop any deeper relationship with them, except a growing affection for Sabine, the prostitute he sees regularly at a local hotel. His sister Agnès is a teacher, and is apparently happily married to Jean-Philippe, but he works very hard and doesn't seem to have been giving her all the affection she needs recently. She bumps into Stéphane, a young man recently returned to the town whom she knew as a child. He is obsessively interested in a young family who live nearby. The film gradually explores the hidden feelings and desires of each of the main characters. Will any of them find happiness? Written by Graham Inglis

J'attends l'intrigue (I'm waiting for the plot)
31 March 2007 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

If you like French films with lingering shots of a tree, where you're not sure why you're being shown a particular scene, where you're not really all that drawn to any of the characters, and you spend the entire film trying to work out whether you will ever be shown any connection between two separate groups of characters, then this is the film for you.

I was looking at my watch after fifteen minutes, just to check how long it had run without really showing anything at all. I'm afraid I like a bit more of a storyline than this, and less open questions left to the imagination of the viewer. I was thinking simply "Why?" after five minutes, and frankly the question was never answered. What was the director trying to show? I have absolutely no idea. Very good performance by Florence Loiret, though - I hope we soon see her again in something more worth watching.
