A banal comedy about a young left-wing activist and her more moderate boyfriend trying to find themselves in a world that isn't as black and white as they would like, never quite figures out what it wants to be. Lacks personality and consistent characterization - the film is a muddled mess of mixed messages and styles.
A lot of fun if one is in the mood for deep belly-laughs, thanks mostly to the subversively screwball heroine; emulating 'Amelie' in its opening moments, mature and politically-incorrect, it's a marvelous rom-com that knows how far it can go with potentially sensitive subject-matter. I'm grateful anytime I can laugh a little at the self-important French.
