    How refreshing it is to see an intelligent romantic comedy that entertains and enlightens while successfully breaking all the rules of the genre. The latest offering from French director Cedric Klapisch serves up a warm, funny, smartly written tale that presents fresh, realistic insights on romance without ever becoming schmaltzy or saccharinely sentimental. Leads Francois Civil and Ana Girardot turn in fine, exceedingly natural performances that are totally believable and never stretch credibility. And then there's the cinematography, which shows off the beauty of the French Alps and aspects of Paris probably never seen by outsiders. The film takes viewers on quite an emotional journey on its way to its climax, but the trip is well worth it, providing the basis for a joyful and satisfying conclusion. This is a truly terrific film -- don't miss it.

    A total masterpiece. Not to be missed. Great acting and fantastic story. I saw it at the Lincoln Center French Film Festival. Moving, smart and utterly romantic. Prepare to gasp.
