Love draws a woman into unknown dimensions in this drama from France. Emma (Clemence Poesy) is a real estate salesperson who is visiting an airport when she meets Francois (Gaspard Ulliel), a scientist doing research on black holes and similar interstellar phenomena. Emma is immediately attracted to Francois and he feels the same way about her; they impulsively head out to the country for a romantic weekend, and all is fine until Francois vanishes while taking a bike ride. Emma has no idea what's become of Francois and reports him missing before she returns to Paris, where she's helping a Japanese student of the paranormal (Momoko Fructus) find an apartment. Francois's brother Michel (Eric Ruf) believes Emma is up to no good when he arrives in Paris to speak with her about Francois's disappearance, but just like his brother he's drawn to her beauty, even though he's already married. Emma and Michel soon fall into an affair, but it's not long before he also vanishes. This time, Emma ... Written by Anonymous

Yet another Artsy Godard-inspired French movie
21 June 2008 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

I don't like Godard... I'm not saying he's a bad director... I just can't stand his movies! The first time I saw a Godard movie I told myself I would never see another one... but then I said myself I could not draw any conclusions by just one movie... and I made the error of watching yet another Godard movie (oh how I regretted it!).

Then I said myself Godard could not be representative of French movies... and I risked watching other movies. Even if from time to time (sadly still frequently) I continue to have disappointments I have to say I saw many interesting French movies.

But then I committed the error of seeing this movie. The general topic attracted me: a romantic entanglement with a bit of sci-fi intrigue. But as soon as the film started I could see it was a typical French movie (the type I don't like...) and as time passed I started having flashbacks from my first Godard nightmare! The problem is not only the complex romantic scenarios with long and strange (for me, at least!) dialogs which transform my movie sessions into nasty torture. If it wasn't already bad enough, I couldn't find anything in the movie I could relate to (yes, you can call me crazy, I need things to relate to in a movie!). Even the sci-fi part of it disappointed me! If the first 15 minutes were like a typical french romantic artsy-horror, I spent the rest of the movie cursing me for deciding to watch the movie...

Damm you Artsy Government Funded movies!!! It's the last time I'm going to watch such a movie... until the next!
