Not even Géraldine Pailhas's natural beauty can save this awful film. Predictable from start to finish, unbearably judgmental, full of clichés would be too little to describe it. The royal Edith Scob has a nice out of character role, this time not as a classy mum like at "L'heure d'été" not as shiny as "SoeurThérèse.com"'s. Her "friend" (Julie Ferrier as "Muriel") being neurotic, too easy on men, shallow, bossy, hysterical, insecure, did I mention she's there only to force us to like our protagonist :)? She seems to be typecast: the same role (Éléonore) as in the much better: "Notre univers impitoyable".
If you like corny manipulating TV films this is the one to get.
PS: I can't believe Géraldine had a great almost main character at "L'Adversaire". What a waist of talent! She can definitely act, the trouble must be elsewhere.
