Assayas's sense of how relationships evolve between people over time is conveyed with a rich and vivid novelistic density.

Assayas avoids easy resolutions, and Ali Farka Toure's score reminds us that each year brings with it a possibility that one will change the cycle.

A kaleidoscopic but engrossing study of the shifting sands of friendship among a group of Parisians.

It's a bit like a Woody Allen film without the kvetching or the wisecracks, but younger and more vital.

The characters are all properly engaging and interesting, but the story feels the same as many others I've seen.

Assayas puts a shiny gloss on those who choose to live loose lives...

The cast is full of talented French actors -- Virginie Ledoyen, Francois Cluzet, Mathieu Amalric, Jeanne Balibar -- who play people with flaws and fears and who eventually reach a tender understanding.

Reveals the terrible fragility of male friendship and the ways in which it often disappoints those who invest it with burdens it cannot bear.

Sight and Sound

Denis Lenoir's camera is almost always on the move, shoulder-borne, shuddering or looking for blurred close-up detail to put to use in the film's transitional sequences.

If Assayas doesn't always transport his film's events beyond the all too commonplace, his understatement can also yield moments of quiet simplicity.

It is, in many ways, a modest film. But a director who offers glimpses of life that are recognizable in both detail and texture isn't so common that we can afford to overlook what he has achieved here.

The results may not be completely original or thought-provoking, but on whole, the movie is refreshingly honest and heartfelt.

The cast, including Virginie Ledoyen, François Cluzet, and Mathieu Amalric, is as well coordinated as a fine chamber-music ensemble; their entrances and vanishings and re-entries play like recurring motifs.

The film doesn't leave the audience with a moral. It just leaves a sense of having been in the stimulating company of passionate people.

July 9, 1999


The individual plot lines fit together seamlessly and the cast is easy on the eye, but this melancholy trawl through the quagmire of modern relationships is not outstanding.
