Cast & Crew
Yet another example of writer/director Klapisch's way of finding fresh new insights within the most mundane of circumstances.
A film whose limitations are the same as its appeal: It's a bauble.
It features four of the most erotically and emotionally delectable female performances I have seen in one film this year.
Much of the charm of this film is in its understanding of the great fluidity of romantic relationships -- especially before people decide to settle down.
All in all, Klapisch's style approximates the excitement of the French New Wave of the late 1950s.
As he did in When the Cat's Away, Klapisch demonstrates an understanding for the way young people caught between the demands of adulthood and their lingering adolescence behave.
It's hard to complain about a film that combines Paris and the city in the world that is most like it.
