A few seconds after the start of the end credits, there are three scenes that involve some of the characters: in the first one, the nymphomaniac friend of the female protagonist seduces the former fiancée of the latter; in the second scene, the father of the female protagonist chats with his friends; in the last scene, one of the characters tries to seduce a woman by imitating the main character's manners, but fails.

One of the best films I've seen this year, combining a mix of romance, hilarious comedy and surprisingly beautiful cinematography. The connection between the two lead characters is fantastic, better than what is usually served in most US rom coms.
I haven't seen a French film since Taxi came out years ago and went into the cinemas with a few lads who I watch films with every Sunday so was a little apprehensive if the film would actually make us laugh or not. No need to worry about that as we were all laughing out loud, indeed the whole audience was.
Given the simplicity of the storyline and slapstick humour at times I could have felt the film was a tad flat, lacking a refined edge almost. But I came out of the cinema feeling exactly the opposite having been swept up by the stunning shots surrounding the harbour at sunset, fantastic winding hilltop roads, even an empty bar looked stunning.
It's not the kind of film in which you wait for a twist in the end, you know what's going to happen, but the ride getting their is well worth it. It's one of those films which stays with you for days afterwards...man I wish was on holiday on the French coast right now!
