Really-well written
19 October 2019 | by maximetuloupSee all my reviews

A woman with a very special character has been cheating on her husband for years with young, well-groomed minots. The husband ends up realizing, and the couple takes a night to think about their separate states of a simple alley. This film is a very good surprise, it is expected by reading the synopsis to a French drama all that is classic and schoolboy but we find ourselves in front of a truly touching work combining comedy, fantasy and obviously drama. The 4 main characters are played with great accuracy, special mention to Chiara Mastroianni and Vincent Lacoste who plays characters with very nice attitude. Christophe Honoré delivers a film to the screenplay that I have already seen dozens of times, but never in this way.
