As adults, best friends Julien and Sophie continue the odd game they started as children -- a fearless competition to outdo one another with daring and outrageous stunts. While they often act out to relieve one another's pain, their game might be a way to avoid the fact that they are truly meant for one another.
An accidental discovery near a doctor's estate stirs up some painful memories eight years after his wife's hideous murder, and now, things are bound to take a turn for the unexpected. Does the good doctor know more than he's letting on?
I went into this film in Sydney with very little in the way of expectations. I found it extremely funny, and Canet is extremely self depreciating throughout the film as he looks as his life as an elder statesman of French cinema. The film is very funny, and excels in revealing the nuances of French cinema through Canet and his wife Marion Cotillard. I felt that it definitely could have been about half an hour shorter, so could have done with tighter editing perhaps. However, if you want a feel-good film look no further. Allez Canet.
