Devos manages to keep it afloat in the second half as the actress peels away for her own adventure and writer-director Jérôme Bonnell develops a subplot that will force the lovers to part for good.

"Just a Sigh" lives up to its name. It disappears without a trace.

"Just a Sigh" charms, with its scenes of street musicians, philosophical debates and headstrong romance, as much as it poses dilemmas of fate and desire.

A bracingly romantic drama that's alive with a mature sense of passion and mystery.

You may complain that "Just a Sigh" is too episodic to cohere and that Alix's eccentricities are plot mechanisms. But to me, this fateful day-in-the-life feels believable.

The interiors of our likeable lovers have not been furnished substantially enough to suggest real lives beyond the hotel walls.

Audience Reviews for Just a Sigh


OK, so I don't really know how good this movie is. Very early on I thought, "this would play VERY differently if the gender of the characters was reversed." So I watched two movies simultaneously and it was fascinating experiencing the audiences response to one movie while imagining their very different response to the other. Watched that way, it's wonderful.
