Suffocatingly boring record of a fascinating era
4 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A two hour and forty-six minute soap opera about dozens of people I didn't care about for even ONE minute. Not even for one SECOND.

A heavy, plodding, totally humorless and lifeless look at the most exciting and eventful 40 years in the history of the world. I refuse to believe it was as boring in France during those decades as this movie makes it seem.

I love France, the French language, French movies, and the charming, cranky, creatively self-centered French people who love their country so much that they sincerely believe it's the center of the world. They deserve better than this dead, stupid, catatonically boring, navel-gazing, leaden record of their recent history. They've made some fantastic movies, but this is not one of them.
