Marie's cell phone beeps when receiving this text message, but when Marie opens the text message, the cell phone's display shows that it is set on mute ("silencieux"). See more »
Though parts of the movie might be enjoyable, characters don't succeed in building a plausible plot. This isn't a consequence of the actors' performance which goes from correct to very good, but it is due to a deep weakness of the whole of the script. It lacks order, fails in getting rid of some parts that are not only not necessary, but also harmful for the storytelling. Much of the situations and relationships are much too false to construct a movie. And I don't believe a different script-writing would have succeeded in doing so. While the movie pretends to be deeper than a comedy, it is much too superficial; much remains unexplained, and too many topics are boringly recurring. Even the few surprises in the plot lack of narrative power to change the overall.
