Lindon is a strong, sensitive actor, heir to the stoic French working-class tradition of Jean Gabin and Lino Ventura. And not enough can be said for Kiberlain, an actress willing to be seen in all her ranges. show more
Characters had no depth and therefore no connection to the viewer.We never got any sense of who these people were and why they were so dissatisfied. Visually beautiful but emotionally empty. Endlessly long, empty moments in which characters are supposedly wrestling with inner demons but their utter lack of compelling conflict left this viewer thinking "who cares?" and glancing at my watch. BORING!
Beautiful and subtle movie told with little dialogues...Everything is suggested. A glance, a silence...This is a simple story of two strangers falling in love, with two amazing actors. Highly recommended!
