Oh, I loved it. I was impressed right from the beginning, and my admiration just kept going throughout. I haven't seen a lot of Assayas but that's the first film of his, where I understood his acclaim. I love the way the film defies easy categorization, there's just so much to love. Did you just recently see it?
Yea, I think its probably one of the best I've ever seen also. Very entertaining and profound. If that's his best film, I feel disappointed I'll always measure everything I see from him now on up to this. But I guess that's a good problem to have. I loved the wild implausibilities and the genre blending. It seems like one of those films where you have to hate cinema to love it. Very hectic and restrained all at once. I love the scene with Diane and Herve at the restaurant towards the end.
