A comedy with interesting insights
bijan-matin from Turkey
22 October 2010
This is not a typical slow moving French movie, although there is
nothing wrong with those when they are good,it is relatively paced and
full of comedy overtones and witty dialogs. Sophie is beautiful and
charming as ever so I definitely recommend it to her fans. She delivers
a solid performance with a nice supporting cast although maybe the
characters are a bit clichés...alright, alright very clichés...
However, clichés are clichés for a reason and they convey loud and
clear messages as intended to all public. The movie and its story
remain quite original and combine wit, imagination and a lot more depth
than the characters do. Although it is mostly a comedy it has the right
scenes to create a roller-coaster in the emotions and manages to get
some tears in the audience's eye in the proper moments.
What I liked most of all in the movie is its ability to push you to
rethink your life and the way you live it. It forces you to reconsider
if you have been paying the right amount of attention to the deserving
people in your life, if you have settled from your ambitions, if you
have sold out or stayed true to yourself. It also refrains from making
harsh judgments and lets you ponder on your own, does not make the call
for you. The world needs all kinds of people to go around...
Overall it is a good movie that manages to entertain and get you
thinking about your existence as it intends to do. I recommend this to
people who feel they might still be searching for themselves or are
having second thoughts about their important decisions.
