The film was shown in the Istanbul Film Festival 2006. As I'm a fan of
French movies I was thrilled to see Claude Berri's 2005 film. The
classical plot is elaborately woven but its not including any real
suspense or surprise. The most prominent feature which is shared by
each character is their loneliness and lack of true happiness or deep
feeling for anything or anyone. The individualism so characteristic of
the postmodern world keeps them reserved, self-centered, self-absorbed
that is selfish and uncaring. The strange thing is, this is not
considered abnormal because it's shared by everyone. Besides the one
who stays is not so very different from the one who stays and the
reasons of their different choices are not revealed to us. So we don't
feel relieved or disturbed that either one "reste or part".Whatsoever
the great actors and actresses can be an excuse to see the film.
