      Boyd van Hoeij european-films.net Conceived as tailor-made characters for the four actors, the roles obviously fit them like a glove, though the stories are not always as engaging as the characters in them. Sep 27, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Jalil Lespert's second outing as director is an interwoven tale of four people, each with their own problems, who's paths cross on Christmas Eve. Nothing remarkable acting wise or story wise, though it does flow pretty well until the last segment involving Sami Bouajila, which feels like it's just been tagged on at the end. Not completely terrible, but not a film I would chose to watch a second time. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Bof... Ca commence pas si mal pis ca s'egare assez vite merci... Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Cela commence pas mal et ca se desagrege au fil et a mesure. Un mot : rate !
