Nothing exceptional here

I don't think this good time waster will remain unforgettable in audiences mind. The usual stuff telling the story of a pretty Young woman who searches a job in Paris. It describes her daily burden, daily struggle against everything and everyone, with her employers, managers and one time lovers. Until she crosses the path of a Young dude who invites her to follow him. And from there this will be the beginning of the end for both of them. It's not a Bonnie and Clyde scheme, I assure you, but it could have been. I have seen such topics at least one million times before. The kind of stuff in which many people among audiences may recognize themselves. Good portrait however, good acting and editing for this female director's work.
