Why so low in IMDb
6 April 2011 | by patotameisterSee all my reviews

I don't understand why this movie is so underrated. Good acted, specially, Jean-Pierre Darroussin. Darrousin shows so many resources that really appalled me. The film has a rhythm that French movies usually lack. I think the three chapters and their sutil and soft changes of perspective are the greatest merit of this movie. I guess this style isn't innovative (remember Rashomon?) but is well articulated and the repeated scenes aren't boring, far from that, it's turn more interesting with every turn. Then the big picture only becomes clear in the third and final part, "All Together," which takes up about half the film and again reshuffles and elaborates on what has come before finally allowing the characters to function independently and showing all their cards.
