French Cinema + lifeftime channel = worst of both worlds
I am a fan of Ardent and certainly of French cinema.
But this film is unforgivably bland and flat.
Now, OK, the French simply cannot make a film without adultery. I get it. It is apparently some French law. And usually a one with good results. But it is one of several utterly forced aspects and plot lines thrown into this slightly droll "Lifetime channel" "made-for-TV" quality film that make the entire experience seem artificial. It doesn't shock, excite, enlightening, add drama, sadness or happiness. It is just a has to be there because it is the only thing the writers could think of.
The rest of the film is predictable and cliché. No usual French subtleties, simply nothing at all of interest
