DONT BOTHER-IT GETS NOWHERE FAST (ACTUALLY QUITE SLOWLY)
why did they make it in the first place?
I enjoy French flms as they have 'atmosphere'
this was dull and dreary.

Why JB decided that this was a good idea I shall never understand, Simply wooden acting by male actors and terrible script and narrative. By far the worst JB movie I have ever seen.

Wish I had read the reviews before choosing to watch

This film has taught me a valuable lesson, pay more attention to customer reviews before adding to your list! I have done this the wrong way and round and have now read the reviews after wasting an hour and a half of my life, in truth slightly less as I had fallen asleep by the end.
Turgid film with no redeeming features. Usually enjoy a bit of french cinema but this was without redemption

An extra star for Juliette, otherwise one star only!

Only the unique charisma of Juliette Binoche could carry this film, and even that is not enough.
This is a world of self-obsessed, wealthy, cultured Parisians going through mid-life relationship angst, and there is no wit or lightness of touch to make it interesting. This must be Claire Denis's worst film, a real departure from her usual high standards. Maybe Eric Rohmer could have pulled this story off, but not with such a turgid script.
The final sequence, where Binoche consults a mysterious relationship counsellor (played by Gerard Depardieu in an easy little 'earner' cameo) brings the whole thing to a lame ending.
