Fair character study from the pen of director Emmanuel Bourdieu who has certainly written far better scripts for others. Denis Podalydes and Clovis Cornillac give reliable turns here as does Natacha Regnier as their common interest. Script never seems to get anywhere with an ending which should really start the story.
Some great visual moments, scenery, production design but was mostly bored by this. Felt no connection to the characters and skimmed through most of the film. Some good acting too but nothing great about this mediocre film.
An interesting way to find out someone is in love with you. Not overly focused on the relationship between Simon and Isabelle as it heeds those immediately and secondarily involved in this story. As a viewer I found it very natural for a melodrama.
