2.5 (but me not rounding up is telling). A pretty good romp with a pretty good script with a pretty good cast and perfectly lazy execution. Ozon is like a sophisticate de Palma without the drugs - all the hackery, none of the fun. This could have been fun! Just watch as it dissolves into other, better, movies right before your eyes.
Pleasant movie. The setting is terrific, of course. The focus in tiny details was enchanting. I appreciated the irony in incorporating crime in the story, but it was a rather dissatisfying turn of events, imo. I preferred the psychological and social study of the characters done in the first hour. I thought Sagnier was great in her role.
