Nice, Shallow and Boring
2 June 2016 | by micke-bystromSee all my reviews

The actors are doing their job, but not more. The feelings are only on the surface and never take off. Lot's of nice looking and unconvincing footage swirls by showing very little of how these people are supposed feel. Anaemic to say the least.

The main characters themselves and their story is boring to follow. Even the music picks are devoid of real emotion, except maybe the end track. There is only one plot twist or some kind of surprise and it's not convincing. The best scenes were when the main character's relationships to their children were in focus, where I found them more believable than in their relationship with each other.

If you want a French bland feel good love story I guess this will be all right, but there is little inspiration to be found and very little if anything to reflect over. I wish I hadn't wasted my time on this one.
