:Light, yet touching romantic comedy about friendship
Three childhood friends, who moved to Paris as young adults, are now in their early 30s. Beautiful Kathy, who has a fear of involvement, has won herself a reputation as cold and hostile to men. Despite her attraction to Romain, she keeps pushing him away, terrified of getting hurt. Tara, living with an emotionally abusive man, turns to food for comfort. Yann is the only one of the three who seems to have a satisfying emotional life, deeply in love with his boyfriend Alfredo.
Then one day, Yann is diagnosed with cancer, forcing all three friends to reconsider their lives. Things start to change....
For some reason, this film has received a low rating on IMDb, which it in NO WAY deserves. It isn't a heart-rending work of genius but deserves to be judged within its own genre, as an occasionally touching, feel-good film about romance & friendship. It's well-acted and the storyline trots along nicely, keeping you entertained. Perhaps its weakest point is its occasional foray into sugaryness - but then it's a romantic comedy, and certainly isn't as sickly sweet as Amelie or your standard Hollywood fare. The friendship between the three leads is very well played.
Don't expect miracles but it's a more than enjoyable way to pass 90 minutes. I thoroughly recommend it.
