Aglaé Lanctot, 25-years-old, is as insecure as can be. As a result of being ‘brought up’ by an irresponsible mother and by an absent father, she can now find her balance only in a methodical life and a regular, well-defined job.

Preposterous in a contrived way. Serious subjects such as trans-sexuality, corporate responsibility and globalization are merely McGuffins designed to move the film along or provide a cheap laugh. That said, there are some nice moments, colors and frames, and the actors are good.
I would've given it a pass just for steering clear of Eat Pray Wild territory - It's a film with great rhythm, easy to zone into (perfect the evening after losing an hour to daylight savings). It could've been more mediocre and still been perfectly watchable. Instead, it got progressively better with each passing scene. Which is a lovely way for a film to unfold, actually... 3.5
The effects of globalization on a young woman in France are amusingly captured in this enjoyable tale that features a dynamite turn by India Hair as Aglae. Though the film is pretty episodic it's quite enjoyable and full of little moments that shine.
Disfruté la película. La historia envuelve rápido, tiene dirección fotográfica de alta calidad. Hay momentos donde puedo comprar la espontaniedad y terquedad de los personajes, al final me sentí un poco desconectado. Es una historia sobre encontrarse a si mismo entre un mundo gigante.
This is a lovely comedy drama debut from Canadian French director Gravel, with an excellent script and photography, you travel through the anguish, difficulties, overcoming in incredible scenarios of several countries.
