Movie Info

Acclaimed director Claude Berri (Jean de Florette) helms the whimsical romantic comedy Ensemble, c'est tout (Hunting and Gathering, 2007). A box office blockbuster in France, the picture follows the romantic couplings that form in the lives of several lonely Parisian singles. The lead characters include: an emotionally fragile, exhausted cleaning lady named Camille (Audrey Tatou) who is suffering from anorexia; a well-to-do young man named Phillibert struggling with his own sexual orientation (Laurent Stocker) but who begins to drift toward heterosexuality and a stable relationship with a woman; and Phillibert's rebellious pothead roommate Franck (Guillaume Canet), who can never quite breach the possibility of committing to one woman, or come face to face with his dream of opening a French restaurant - until he meets Camille and the pieces begin to fall into place. Writer-director Berri adapted the novel by Anna Gavaldi.

    Usually I have seen that many foreign films are highly over-rated. But this one deserved every applause it could get. This is a beautiful film about friendship and love; more importantly, very well shot, without the typical FrenchMovie gimmicks like crazy camera angles or twisted plot lines.

    Note to self no. 1: Start watching more French films. Note to self no. 2: Watch all movies starring Audrey Tautou.

    A solid, meaningful film, even though it's a little too slow and the message too subtle. The performances were as good as the script, and the music and photography are top notch. It's quite a relaxing film, calming and enjoyable, ideal to have in a cold day with a coffee. A really nice feel-good movie.
