I especially like how this film begins, and at the turning point near the middle when things really began to take shape and come together which makes it what it is; an enjoyable piece of French cinema that deals with two brothers trying to make sense of their lives, and a father trying to hold things together despite the darkness that's all so prevalent in his family's existence.
The loss of the teenage sister and daughter to suicide clearly always looms over them, but the brothers carry on with their lives consisting of relationships with young women, and the father keeps his head just above water to make sure his sons stick together and help one another in times of need.
The one brother's marriage ends, and is forced to live with his father in which he spends much of his time alone and sleeping, becomes a possible suicide risk, and falls into far from what his ladie's man lifestyle was prior to his failed marriage.
It's interesting how director Christophe Honore is able to catch certain moods with his choices of song and beautiful cinematography, and how he uses a telephone conversation with singing rather than dialogue which seems to show more of a connection between the characters involved.
It's also interesting how the film comes full circle, shows how vital it is to be able to pull the good out of the bad, what the most important things in life are, and how we never know what's going to happen in our next moments.
