Excellent Clotilde Courau. Stanislas Merhar, as insipid as ever, is no match for her. A typical Philippe Garrel story of a couple going through a marital crisis, beautifully shot in black and white.

Interesting story. But a tedious watch. It was difficult to follow the spoken word to get the full impact with the lag in subtitles and quick showing of them. I had to repeat parts many times to catch what was being said. There is also some spoken narrative to add to what the actors say. ...Read more

The plot will make you mad but Courau is amazing and Garrel's style is great.

Why should the plot make you mad?

Not sure if you saw the film - and I know getting "mad" is what movies are often supposed to do - but I found myself wanting the original couple to succeed (if that makes sense).
