No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Sometimes a film is simply a story we might have found interesting to live.
An elaborate trifle that can be either beguiling or baffling depending on your point of view.
The cast is first-rate, as is the cinematography by Irina Lubtchansky. But the story, co-written by Rivette, is paper-thin and stagy.
Never is the material excited into the kind of playful uncertainty that Rivette all but trademarked; the inertness of the performances robs the movie of spirit.

It has most of Rivette's usual touches, and it's charming, but it just seems to go by too fast without settling on anything.
Though small in scope and running-time...deals in substantial human issues, and does so with grace and an odd charm.
It's charming and has most of Rivette's usual touches, but it feels like a minor film.
Jacques Rivette indulges his love of theater with this offbeat, low key love story punctuated by acts from aerialists, tumblers and tightrope walkers.
