Storyline

Anne-Marie lives an easy life with Gilbert, a rich plastic surgeon: a beautiful house, a doggy, a cleaning lady, expensive furniture, the lot. Not so easy in fact when she thinks twice. She does not get on with her husband any longer. She gets on his nerves and he does not attract her any longer. She feels good only when she jogs on the beach and ... when she is the arms of her lover, Leo. One day, Gilbert gets killed in a car accident. Good news, since she will be able to live with Leo. The trouble is her well-meaning family settle at her villa with a view to supporting the "poor widow" morally. Anne-Marie just cannot admit she is not distressed at all, especially to her son Christophe. She is now even more of a prisoner than when Gilbert was alive... Written by Guy Bellinger

A list of « At Last » (Screen)
17 February 2008 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

AT LAST:

. a movie for my friend & me alone : actually, I think it was the first time. Why this movie in particular ? It's a recommendation from work colleagues.

. a french movie : Being french, my annual dose is about 2/3 by year ! Amazing, isn't it !

. a movie out of Paris : find me a french movie outside Paris and I bet you are a great movie-maniac ! Because french cinema, as the french life, values Paris above everything, the remain is desert !

. a movie in the actual time: another choice of french cinema : a narcissus love for its past : as in advertising, it was the « good old days » ! I don't think so !

. a movie with a morality : I like when a director illustrates a story with a point of view, even if i'm not agree with it. There, it's about the price to pay when you lack courage or get into easiness with lies. Well, what happens when you have no respect for your relatives !

In other words, it's a light comedy about true and false loves. maybe some scenes failed because they are too written to appear spontaneous!

But, it gives us a great evening!
