Storyline

Fifteen years earlier, Marie, a well off young woman, had set up house with Boris, a working class man. They loved each other and had twin daughters, Jade and Margaux. But now, Marie and Boris do not get along anymore and have decided to get a divorce. The trouble is that Boris cannot afford to find a new place of his own and, in the meantime must continue to cohabit. Marie desperately wants Boris away and cannot put up with him any longer. Her partner, for his part, will not leave home unless she gives him half of what the house is worth. Marie refuses because she is the one who bought the place. Boris refuses because he renovated it and brought considerable added value to their belonging. The situation is deadlocked. How will they get out of this hell? Written by Guy Bellinger

Quotes

Boris Marker: [to his daughters] It scares you when we shout? You think we shout a lot? Too often? We still love each other. We shout, but we love each other. It mustn't worry you. It's not against you. You know that? It changes nothing for you. We love you both and it doesn't change how we feel. It's nothing to do with you. We'll try not to shout again. We promise.

19 July 2018 | by ravitchnSee all my reviews

Some American films about couples beginning to fall apart have been well done and funny even, but this film takes the whole matter far too seriously. It is a serious matter but no one wants just woe and woebegone. I much prefer "Kramer vs. Kramer" and "The War Between the Tates." The French and francophone Belgians take everything too seriously except what should be taken seriously.
