Time was - La Petite Lili, Swimming Pool etc - Ludo Sagnier couldn't wait to get naked, probably reasoning 'okay, I can't act act but I can distract by flaunting the flesh' - now, yet again she confirms that she can't act fully clothed and ironically the storyline offers several opportunities (bed scenes) for her to appear legitimately, as it were, in the buff, instead of which she turns coy and makes like she's in a fifties Hollywood film where coyness was king. Amazingly it took no less than seven credited writers to snatch a suet pudding from the jaws of a soufflé mostly by miscasting. There's not a lot wrong with the premise of two ex-lovers being thrown together unexpectedly and having to share - in this case - adjoining seats on a seven-hour transatlantic flight if you overlook the fact that we've seen it before ... and before ... and before. Even so put the right actors - Julien Boisellier, say, or Gregori Derangere, with Cecile de France, Deborah Francois, Virginie Ledoyen, i.e. someone who can actually do loveliness personified and ACT and you've got yourself a pleasant film. As it stands ... well, lead balloon springs to mind
