      Tom Keogh Seattle Times Her story construction -- blurring fact and fantasy and mixing scenes from different time periods -- is confusing and wearying. Rated: 2.5/4 Mar 18, 2005 Full Review Andrew Sarris Observer This is a rich comedy that leaves you suspended, with all its hubbub, between wanting to laugh and wanting to cry. Aug 26, 2004 Full Review Lou Lumenick New York Post Overlong and heavy-handed, semi-autobiographical dramedy. Rated: 2/4 Aug 20, 2004 Full Review Sean Axmaker Seattle Post-Intelligencer The contrast of the naive assurance of youth with the confusion and ambiguity of adulthood is sweet but simplistic and the wandering script hasn't much else to offer. Rated: C Mar 18, 2005 Full Review Maitland McDonagh TV Guide It's ultimately hard to care deeply about a silly, sheltered girl-woman who's taking an inordinately long time to learn that money can't buy happiness. Rated: 2.5/5 Aug 20, 2004 Full Review David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor A diverting dramatic comedy. Rated: 3/4 Aug 19, 2004 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member (** 1/2): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img] A strange film and with a good cast. But, my main problem with it is this: what was the point of the whole thing? A near-miss. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member A good first feature film from Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi, who wrote and directed the film as well as playing Federica. The script was rather long-winded, without enough substance and not witty. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member I don't see much of this film being a comedy in any sense.... Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member 1/2 a star extra for the camel animation at the beginning. the rest of the movie is well-acted but draggy. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member It's a good movie if you're French: you understand the conflicts in the Bruni's family (Carla Bruni-Sarkozy isn't from the same father than the rest of her family). On a psychological point of view, it's fun to see a woman feeling guilty of being rich and dating a communist who "has to work" and whose mother "was a maid who could not afford to have a lover"... You can see here the old French war between the left and the right wings (whereas a few wish to be poor...). Valeria is a great actress as well as Jean-Hugues Anglade and Lambert Wilson. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member film un peu sans queue ni tête. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Read all reviews
