a very nice French bitter-sweet comedy
26 October 2014 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

'Tristesse club' (= French for 'Sadness club') makes one of these comedies the French excel in. Dealing with a serious subject in a light-hearted way, leaving you with a nice aftertaste. It feels like you just enjoyed a glass of high-quality French wine.

Firmly placed in our present 2014-world, this film's convincing plot is carried on very well by its three leads: Ludivine Sagnier, Vincent Macaigne and in particular Laurent Lafitte. Its shooting is adequate, supporting a story with some surprising twists and turns.

All in all, 'Tristesse club' provides you with a pleasant watch. Makes you feel that you are part of the scene, and leaves you anxious about its ending all the way through.
