Los Angeles Times Provocative and well-acted. This one's worth looking for. Rated: 3.5/5 Dec 7, 2007 Full Review Ernest Hardy Village Voice A beguiling comedy from a Marxist-inflected thesis that is filled with characters who rage against the machine with pessimism, optimism, and navet (C)"sometimes in rotation. Dec 4, 2007 Full Review Jay Antani Boxoffice Magazine An impressive achievement, one that combines terrific performances with a lovely storytelling style and themes and characters that actually matter. Dec 7, 2007 Full Review Keith H. Brown Eye for Film An assured sophomore effort that's worth a look. Rated: 3.5/5 Dec 7, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member A story that mix, love, doubts, reality and the fact of being sick of society and the stuff that are around us... quitting all that is easy, quitting love, not. Wonderful acting, i loved it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member 2 women, with opposite lifestyles, are in love with each other....and deal with realism Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Pas de noirceur attendue, pas de cliches a deux balles sur la marginalite, pas de non dits utopistes non plus. Finalement un voila un film courageux et parfois subtil... Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member I really like all the characters and how they represented very well their different and complemented perspectives of life. Beautiful ending also! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Foreign, French. Good movie. About an on-again, off-again, lesbian couple. Slow in areas, but for the most part, a good movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Very interesting story about love and beliefs in life.
