Storyline

Every year, Max, a successful restaurant owner, and Véro, his eco-friendly wife invite a merry group of friends to their beautiful beach house to celebrate Antoine's birthday and kick-start the vacation. But, this year, before they all leave Paris, their buddy Ludo is hurt in a serious accident, which sets off a dramatic chain of reactions and emotional responses. The eagerly anticipated vacation leads each of the protagonists to raise the little veils that for years they have draped over what bothers and upsets them. Pretenses become increasingly hard to keep up. Until the moment when the truth finally catches up with them all... Written by The Film Catalogue

Mediocre - rambling - shapeless
19 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

The singular failing of this film is in the writing: it is a simple story (OK so far) but it's bookended episodes of accident and the result of that incident do not give it sufficient structure. The center of the film is tedious. It is not much more than a home movie of one's closest friends and that is not enough material to interest strangers.

Nor does it do what a good art does: which is move from the specific situation to a general plain in which to invite others into, and share, the drama. It descends into a shapeless hole of laughs, cuddles (endless embraces and smiles as if they had a quote to fulfill) and silly episodes of similar length and boredom. The use and duration of pop songs with montage is like an idiotic pop video and reveals the low aspirations and mediocrity behind the design.

The characters are uneven and the female are very badly crafted; the male are simpering fools and without much emotional maturity or ability. The closing scenes are mawkish and indulgent to a degree that ought to have been consigned to a cutting room floor.

The entire film is over long and does not merit the duration at all as it is has been completed without adequate editing.

The scenes of the Bordeaux coast are the best feature of the entire film.
