This film represents the second generation of directorial works by the Demy family that stars members of the Mastroianni/Deneuve family, having been directed by Matthieu Demy and starring Chiara Mastroianni. Previously Matthieu's father, Jacques Demy, directed Chiara's mother, Catherine Deneuve, in four films and father, Marcello Mastroianni, in A Slightly Pregnant Man (which also co-starred Deneuve).

Mathieu Demy has made a vanity piece about nothing, except what a charmless pompous and humorless man looks like brooding and boring an audience for hours. This guy leaves his beautiful girlfriend, about whom he is oddly, babyishly equivocal, for a mindless senseless and deeply ugly excursion into SoCal and Mexico, where he makes all the wrong solipsistic empty-headed moves of a spoiled rich reckless and cowardly dope. The director is obviously a rich kid, spoiled, with cinema bloodlines that allow him to shoot self-indulgent nonsense with truly great co-stars. I was embarrassed for them. The film is to self-serious to be hilariously bad, it is just inept and annoying. Sad.
