A love story separated in time. In 1960s Paris, Jacqueline gets by with her disabled son. In present day Montreal, a famous DJ is recovering from a painful divorce. Like in a puzzle, their lives come together in mysterious ways.

Struck by the sheer out-of-nowhere awesomeness of this film (seriously, I never heard the news related to this film around last year), keep repeating along the way that this is the swellest Canadian film since C.R.A.Z.Y. Completely unaware that...................this is from the guy who brought us C.R.A.Z.Y.
I loved the way music was used in this film, and I loved the cinematography. I almost wish the film had been just the 1969 story. While the contemporary part was pretty well done, the editing, skillful as it was, made the entire story more of a puzzle than it should have been. 3.5 stars
I missed it totally on this film. I had no sympathy for any character, the philandering husband was less than a cypher and not much could be said for any of the other characters. His first wife should have gotten over it. Attractive as she was, there'd be no problem 'having-it-off' with someone. The musical score was totally insipid, not a piece of music worth flipping the switch for, a DJ, really.
