A first movie as a director? One thump up!
16 August 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

The film begins with a tender speech of Thérèse interpreted by the excellent Fanny Ardant with her mesmerizing voice: according to her, the true love defines us and is all that matters. Then, we witness the unexpected theft of a bmw by a revolutionary female nudist, with a song of the bloody brilliant Gérard Manset. In two minutes, rhythm and atmosphere are laid!

Personally, I adored the manifold scenes that are deliberately absurd and delightfully droll, with a soft approach of existentialism, without being a depressing vision of humanity and without being abstruse as a book of Martin Heidegger. Nevertheless, without unduly spoiling the script, the end will provide a long-awaited touch of optimism and lightness and will make you forget the disenchanted characters.

The actors Swann Arlaud and Maud Wyler are both sublime. Actually, the whole cast is great. As a synthesis: I loved it! 7/8 of 10
