Funny, smart, intriguing – intense dialogues and a surprising turn of events. Something I like to see in comedy.
It’s reminded me of Woody Allen, but it’s lighter, more feminine. Just like Julie Delpy is a lighter, more feminine artist than Allen.
At first it is not obvious as to why the title character is not present at the beginning of the movie, but then gradually we find out why he is so important to the main protagonist – Violette played by Julie Delpy herself.
Very pleasant film to watch on a Saturday afternoon and like Two days in Paris – I will be getting back to this film with pleasure.
