During the meal scene, seconds before Etienne hits Antoine on the face, the wine stains on Antoine's tee-shirt dramatically change size. Actually on the previous shot they are very small on the collar but on the next shot, they spread onto his whole waist. See more »
What a film!!! Without saying too much about the film, this is a punch in the face. French cinema is still a safe bet for watching quality movies, and obviously, Jean Becker, is one of the greatest directors. This film talks about a man who starts to change his own life suddenly. In a few hours we'll see how a man is tired of his own life, acts like he was insane with family and friends and all he wants is disappear and stop to being tired and bored. It must not be easy to represent this self-destructive man without falling into parody or into an absurd sense of humor what we'll see him with a constant sensation of uncomfortableness. And what about the last half hour. I cannot explain because this film deserves to watch without knowing too much about the plot, but there's pure cinema in it. Good acting, good scriptwriting and specially, an excellent direction. This films deserves to watch it quietly, without rush. A must see.
