It has been nine years since we last met Jesse and Celine, the French-American couple who once met on a train in Vienna. They now live in Paris with twin daughters, but have spent a summer in Greece on the invitation of an author colleague of Jesse's. When the vacation is over and Jesse must send his teenage son off to the States, he begins to question his life decisions, and his relationship with Celine is at risk. Written by

Richard Linklater, Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy had an idea to just show Jesse and Celine on a typical day: Someone goes and picks up the kids and it's only later at night that they have this together moment which actually was one of the original ideas behind the title. See more »

You're just like the little girls and everybody else. You wanna live inside some fairy tale. I'm just trying to make things better. I tell you that I love you unconditionally, I tell you that you're beautiful, I tell you that your ass looks great when you're 80. I try to make you laugh.

Three of us saw this film together, all agree it is as bad a film as we'd ever seen. The couple in front of us said the same as they left midway through. The two couples with whom we spoke after said the same. They were laughing, as were others who were exiting. Literally painful to sit through. Abrasive characters to whom the viewer cannot bond, pointless, gratuitous sex-speak, irritatingly filmed in front of the two actors as they drove or walked toward the camera, bickering non-stop for the entire length of the film. We just wanted them to shut up. Somebody could have filmed us walking around for two hours, talking randomly, and it would have been a much better movie. Why do we want to hear these people spew dysfunctional drivel? Yeah, we get the message, but what a brutal delivery for the viewer to have to endure. We tried to understand what demographic could possibly have been targeted here or might have enjoyed it and came up empty. Horrible, in-your-face soap opera with no redeeming characteristics.
