saw this when it did the cinema circuit, like a fine wine it has aged well, a superb tale of male friendship and how it emerges and forms in the most unlikely situations, sublime soundtrack with a suitably low toned cinematography.
Rather good. Brings a smile to one's face, with an inevitable ending for our hero that suddenly takes off into some forever ambiguous attempt at memorable meaningfulness and utterly fails. Enjoy it, but switch off the last few minutes!
Same premise as Girl on the Bridge and Intimate Strangers, but without the poetic quirks of the first or the depth and general brilliance of the second. Still want to see more Leconte, but this wasn't engaging or consistent enough, despite some nicely observed moments and dialogue.
