      Audience Member The existentialist crisis of a ghost writer in his early thirties... Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member One word cute. A man, a good relationship and a fantasy one, but not overdone like it would have been if it was American. Made me want to have a relationship, well at least to sleep with Marie-Josée Croze (That's the same thing right?). The French are very good at this and I loved it from start to finish. Baer is excellent, actually everyone is excellent. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member merde me suis planté, j'voulai parlé de Mensonge d'Etat... Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Super film avec un E.Baer au sommet de son art! C.Cornillac est aussi très bon! A voir pour se remonter le moral! Très bonne comédie! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member A neat little story - worth a laugh, worth a watch. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Was not hugely impressed Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
