I watched this movie accidentally and I wish I had saved my Euros. You
see very good-looking people, enjoying their lives fully,
stereotypically named (Adam & Eva), a newly remodeled house that looks
like it had been in use for months at least... The problems in this
movie are no real problems, everything is easy and at the end we choose
between some paradisiacal island and an idyllic home. This movie looked
like one of those 'Better living at home' magazines to me. Everything
is sooo very pleasant and tasteful.
Daniel Auteuil seems to be the only one who realizes he is totally out
