A curious tribute to cinema and loneliness. Or loneliness in the cinema
10 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

This movie is sad and funny in the same time. This is a separate stories tale that takes place in a tumble down building, in the suburb of a big city. Poverty row. That's the setting. In this building, first you have a lonely cripple man in his wheel chair who, after a vascular accident - Gustave Kervern - tries to date a night nurse of the local hospital - Valeria Bruni Tedeshi - who is also a lonely soul. This scheme is an open tribute to BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY; even the dumbest could see it. Second, you have another weirder scheme, tribute this time to GRAVITY and a slice of 2001 SPACE ODYSSEY, and showing an American astronaut arriving from space after the collapse of his rocket ship and finding shelter in a flat of the building, helped by a lonely woman, mother of her convict son. A lonely woman, of course. And the third story shows a former actress - Isabelle Huppert - who has lost all her shining stardom and who befriends a young man living on the same floor. This third scheme is probably a tribute to a movie I don't exactly know, maybe a IsabelleHuppert's film. I would not be surprised. One important thing, those three tales are told with a pretty good editing. You have not here three stories shown one after the other... See what I mean? Go and see it. It's worth watching.
