As adults, best friends Julien and Sophie continue the odd game they started as children -- a fearless competition to outdo one another with daring and outrageous stunts. While they often act out to relieve one another's pain, their game might be a way to avoid the fact that they are truly meant for one another.
In 1950s France, Gabrielle is a passionate, free-spirited woman who is in a loveless marriage and falls for another man when she is sent away to the Alps to treat her kidney stones. Gabrielle yearns to free herself and run away with André.
An accidental discovery near a doctor's estate stirs up some painful memories eight years after his wife's hideous murder, and now, things are bound to take a turn for the unexpected. Does the good doctor know more than he's letting on?
This film although funny in parts sounds more like an inside joke than anything else.
Two ace actors seemingly playing at acting and around the craft of acting; like watching Jimi Hendrix playing before a gig; warming up.
The storyline is pitiful and could only resonate with 40-something actors. I am a huge fan of both actors here and rate Tell No One (Ne le dis à personne) as one of the best movies of the last 20 years; but this here I shall say it again seems like an inside joke; something you dreamt up and or thought of doing but should probably not have allowed to get a real airing ... At times you seriously question the sanity of the endeavour. Maybe therapeutic :)
Shame. Still: watch it if you like Canet and Cotillard.
