Storyline

Set in France during the mid-1970s, Vanessa, a former dancer, and her husband Roland, an American writer, travel the country together. They seem to be growing apart, but when they linger in one quiet, seaside town they begin to draw close to some of its more vibrant inhabitants, such as a local bar/café-keeper and a hotel owner.

User Reviews

 
Long Haul Movie.

Beautiful scenary and setting. Although nothing really stands out except for the beautiful location. French people in general are not really that friendly so I don't really buy that quick connection with the couple in the next room. In fact speaking of that couple, they were ordinary, irritating French guy thinking only of sex and the flat chested younger French lady who acted like a child in many respects.. Anyway who would want to get to know Angelina and Brad characters in this movie. Both were unlikeable, in particular Angelina. Skeletal Angelina! Also that peephole how the hell did the French couple next door not notice that? Why would you go on holiday to play cards with the foreigners next room? Why did they seem to spend the entire vacation on the balcony or in the room? Why did Angelina want to show off her redesigned boobs so much? What was the point of it all. Who cares. Never want to watch again.
