The performances are great and Marion Cotillard shows us that she is a natural singer way before Nine. But Les Jolies Choses is kind of weird in a certain way and has some pretty hard senes to watch. The story is not bad but I didn't like how Gilles Paqut Brenner shows it. Besides, ther are some problems in the script that makes you think in the end: "WHAT?". If you don't understand this film, don't worry. The problem isn't with you or the cast, it's with Brenner.
