Five years after their year together in Barcelona, the exuberant flatmates from 2002’s L’aberge espagnole reunite for a Russian wedding. With their student days behind them, they are close to 30 and facing career and relationship issues, yet remain young at heart.

"What's all this shit about love? How do we get so nuts? The time we waste! When you're alone, you cry, "Will I find her?" When you're not- "Does she love me as much as I love her?" "Can we love more than one person in a lifetime?" Why do we split up? All these fucking questions! You can't say we're uninformed. We read love stories, fairy tales, novels. We watch movies. Love, love, love...! "
don't know why a man i used to know had a high opinion about this one. i think the story itself is pointless. just a guy in his late 20s trying to figure out who he want to fuck for the rest of his life. i am more than sure he won't ever find it. sorry, i don't like stories like these. give me inspiration
Just like L'Auberge he repeats songs quite a bit, but at least he picks some good'uns. They did a good job of presenting the "Russian dolls" concept at the end of the film, and it does make you wonder the answer to that question. A stylish film, to be sure. I'd probably watch another one if they make a trilogy out of it. Getting a bit tired fo Romain Duris, though.
A bit better than "L'auberge espagnole" in terms of cinematography and music, but not much else. The character development wasn't as contrasted as in the first one, and the premise as a whole was ill-conceived. The characters as a whole, however, are still likeable.
