Though beautifully filmed and impeccably acted, the story is just too French, domestic and dull to light the fires of conflict.

The problem is that it's impossible to care about the dull man at the centre when he's surrounded my much more colourfully eccentric characters.

Watchable French drama with a strong script and superb performances from Jean-Pierre Bacri and Kristin Scott Thomas, though the unfocussed plot is ultimately a little underwhelming.

There's a dream-like quality to this nimble-footed tale, in which coincidences, repetitions and digressions abound, and where various characters appear seemingly magically within scenes.
