...essentially entertaining throughout - though the ambiguous conclusion is disappointing and extremely unsatisfying.

Audience Reviews for Clara and Me (Clara et Moi)

In "Clara and Me," Antoine(Julien Boisselier) is an actor who goes to a therapist to talk about his worries in not yet having a family. But things are looking up for him when he meets Clara(Julie Gayet), a cute writer who works as a train hostess to pay the bills. Using a pick-up method that could only work on the Paris Metro, she goes out with him. As they date, things go along well and move quickly between the two. So quickly in fact, especially considering Antoine's initial prickliness, that it soon becomes clear that something or someone will throw a wrench into their happiness. When it does happen, it is something more akin to a lightning bolt out of the blue. On the one hand, very few movies are willing to go there. On the other, "Clara and Me" did not have to quite overdo it, when it could find easier ways to point out that no relationship or person is perfect, especially considering it already had a neat musical number in its favor.

You would think a movie about a man who meets the love of his life, only for her to discover she is HIV positive could not be dull. But you would be wrong.
