Marie and Eric, a couple in their thirties who have been together since college, buy their first apartment when Marie is suddenly overcome by doubt. Her encounter with a handsome, dark-haired man forces her to make a decision: she leaves Eric to throw herself into the big sea of pleasure and freedom. But she actually ends up on the bottom of the pool, where she discovers a world without pity: at her age, being single is quickly perceived as a suspicious defect. Enlightened by new friendships, Marie learns to envisage her single life as a chance to become even stronger and to at last be ready to be happy.
... are really fun to watch. Audrey Fleurot especially, as the one who broke away from the pack, went to the States and had a kid. Camille Chamoux is vaguely reminiscent of Jennifer Aniston in her better moments, while Anne Brochet (who at almost 50 is too old to play a 30-something) has some good lines. Olivia Cote as Marie's boss steals every scene she's in; neurotic, demanding and with that sick dog who seems to rule over her, a little bit pathetic.
