Between his friends and the family business, Arnaud’s summer looks set to be a peaceful one. Peaceful until he runs into Madeleine, as beautiful as she is brusque, a concrete block of tensed muscles and doomsday prophecies. He expects nothing; she prepares for the worst.

Really liked this. Adèle Haenel stole the show for me as the hard-boiled yet charmingly kooky doomsayer. Definitely feel this film deserves more credit for what it does accomplish than not, because whilst it's not perfect, it's very entertaining.
The film really captures love. How it starts, the tension and the inevitability. And it shows us the both confronting and subtle the essence of being, our useless ambitions and our wish to escape from all that. I just loved every second of this film.
not really good and not really bad either. this is first film of Thomas Cailley, what is interesting in this movie. not just two lead brilliant cast, but the screenplay is very interesting with a lot of issue and element.
I really liked what Thomas Cailley did here. He chose the most awkward characters and found a way to make them good together in the most honest way possible. Adèle Haenel is as intense as ever, her eye expressions are the best, while Kévin Azaïs really fits his nice guy character. Their chemistry really made this work. Real and authentic. Just forget the English title and stick with the French.
