      Critics Consensus

      Though this French film features good acting, it lacks the wit and charm one would expect to see.

      Audience Member A pessimist view about marriage. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member I enjoyed watching the movie but there are many moments when i thought the movie was already over, still it kept on going! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Some interesting thoughts about sentimental relationships and a masterpiece scene with Charlotte Gainsbourg and Johnny Depp at a Virgin Store. A bit too long for my taste (in the end, this is a French movie) but it is well resolved. I like movies with good endings and this one has it. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie has decent acting and good ideas. But Unfortunately, both things are dragged down immensly by the poor writing and disjointed plot points. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member It's a bit depressing on the onset and has little pick up. Great acting, but the story doesn't fully develop into anything. It has all the makings of a witty, intellectual commentary on modern day marriage but fails to actualize. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Ai, Charlotte, por que tão linda? Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

Rated: 2/4 Sep 9, 2005 Full Review Joseph Proimakis Movies for the Masses full review in Greek Rated: 2.5/5 Oct 3, 2006 Full Review Laura Kelly South Florida Sun-Sentinel Attal taps into that unexpectedness -- the inability of just one person to captain the course of a relationship no matter how hard they try -- and he plays it for all it's worth. Rated: 3/4 Sep 8, 2005 Full Review Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone TheMovieChicks.com There are a few quality moments, but this fairy tale is far from enchanting.
