Storyline

Happily married, faithful to each other, and still very much in love, the middle-aged couple of the early-retired meteorologist, William Lasserre, and his successful businesswoman wife, Madeleine, enjoy a well-ordered life, now that their only daughter has moved to Italy. But, Madeleine is also a skilful painter--and during one of her usual walks in the alpine Vercors region--not only will she stumble upon the town's sophisticated blind mayor, Adam, but also the picturesque rural farmhouse that would become the pair's new dream home. Obviously, things couldn't be better for the Lasserres; however, when calamity strikes Adam and his charming young wife, Eva, it's only natural that the disaster-stricken neighbours would taste a slice of William and Madeleine's warm and lavish hospitality. Just until they get back on their feet.. Written by Nick Riganas

Elderly, wealthy couple enjoys life's pleasures
2 September 2006 | by killerhamsterSee all my reviews

I watched this movie accidentally and I wish I had saved my Euros. You see very good-looking people, enjoying their lives fully, stereotypically named (Adam & Eva), a newly remodeled house that looks like it had been in use for months at least... The problems in this movie are no real problems, everything is easy and at the end we choose between some paradisiacal island and an idyllic home. This movie looked like one of those 'Better living at home' magazines to me. Everything is sooo very pleasant and tasteful.

Daniel Auteuil seems to be the only one who realizes he is totally out of place, but he can't find a way out from the set. Don't watch this, unless you need some ideas for how to decorate your home or where to go for vacation.
