Storyline

Set in France during the mid-1970s, Vanessa, a former dancer, and her husband Roland, an American writer, travel the country together. They seem to be growing apart, but when they linger in one quiet, seaside town they begin to draw close to some of its more vibrant inhabitants, such as a local bar/café-keeper and a hotel owner.

2 hours of my life I can't get back
18 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not going to bore you with a giant wall of text like others have done. I'm just going to give it to you like I see it. The movie was terrible. There is just no other way to explain it. It starts out boring with horrible acting, and just goes downhill from there.

Save your money and definitely do not buy this movie. I honestly would not spend the buck to red box it either. I'm thankful I didn't have to pay anything to see this giant heap of garbage. Sorry to be so blunt, but the movie is just terrible. I guess if you want to look for the good in the movie Angelina Jolie does soak in a tub if you're into that sort of thing.
