A lot of things happen but you don't know why
10 November 2016 | by andyhom-18179See all my reviews

Most of the French reviews I've seen give this film 2.5/5 stars (not good) saying it's boring, lacks plot development or exploration and is a bit of a snoozer. I give it a much more generous 6/10, mostly because of how pulpy it is which I love, moving quickly from one point to the next, not exploring much interpersonal drama or background, simply a series of events in which characters decisions are ultimately proved largely trivial and pointless. A nice balance of subtlety, clichés and wish fulfilment, it is the first romcom I have actually enjoyed in a long time. Kudos for making up a Churchill quote because, (Luchini)"≈things sound more important if Churchill said them". May contain traces of Sofia Coppola.
