Appalling self-indulgent tale in which everything is so telegraphed that you guess the entire storyline within ten minutes; and yet it unfolds just so ... like you have seen your brakes fail and the car careen forward and you count all the trees ahead of you and hit each one one after the other ...
This is from Guillaume Canet one of the best actors of his generation and the man who directed Tell No One (2006)"Ne le dis à personne" arguably a masterpiece
What can one say? From the sublime to this?
The characters are so dull and predictable you want to weep; like caricatures of caricatures ...
At times it reminded me of a very poor remake of The Big Chill (1983)
Friends meet and one of them is no longer and emotions run sky-high etc
The actors here are some of the best of the last 15 years in French cinema and they act brilliantly but still ... don't bother
