Good French style movie
6 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

The thing about this movie is that it shows the life of French characters,in a believable entertaining way. It is entertaining if you are interested in how regular people with regular jobs would handle situations in France. In the film,there are some topics chosen about the few ( about five ) main characters which eventually bring them together. The actors are believable,the decors are ok (Paris streets,interior houses,cafe),the dialogues are smooth,invite for contemplation and contains the biggest weight of these three constituent components. Of course,its about a moment shot in life,so don't expect an end with all answers taken care of!
