Violette (Julie Delpy) is a 45 year old modern Parisen high-powered fashion producer. She is divorced with teen son Eloi nicknamed Lolo. She can't find a good man anywhere and has given up. Her flirtatious friend Ariane pulls her into a spa vacation in the country. They meet up a couple of guys and she starts dating naive nice guy Jean-René Graves. He's also divorced with a child and little experience in dating. Outwardly, Lolo is chummy with JR but secretly, he's working to sabotage the relationship.
Anything with Delpy is elevated by her presence. She needs a charismatic lead to be her opposite. The character may be bland but the actor shouldn't be. Lolo's evil ways are funny at first but the ending turns too dark. As the director, Delpy needs to maintain the tone better than that. Lolo becomes less comedic and more psycho. This has Delpy and a little fun but not that great.
