Le divorce (2003)
Really lame despite some good acting
As a Frenchman who lives in the US, I was curious to see this movie. I was sorely disappointed. Although there are great views of Paris, albeit only of the touristy areas where American tourists are likely to hang out, and some good acting, the plot is so contrived and ridiculous, the situations so absurd, even allowing for the irrationality of human beings, that one has to say indeed that it COULD HAVE BEEN a good movie with the same crew. I haven't read the book, therefore I am unsure of whether the novel was already lame, or whether it was the adaptation that was poor. Conclusion: don't waste your time watching it!
Un couple parfait (2005)
I have to agree: boring
I usually much prefer French movies over American ones, with explosions and car chases, but this movie was very disappointing. There is no way to write a spoiler because nothing really happens. This French couple has been living in Lisbon for years, and they return to Paris for a friend's wedding. They announce to another friend they are having dinner with that they are going to split. Then nothing much happens, they don't seem to know whether they want to separate or not. I don't necessarily think that their hesitations make for a bad movie, it is very human to hesitate before making such a decision for good, but this could be treated in an interesting manner, giving some flesh to their desires and their relationship, but that does not happen. One gets out of the theater unsure of why these two got together or want to split. The only piece I enjoyed was the conversation with the drunk. That was true to life.
