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

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 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.

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.

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