Awful. Boring, insipid, overlong, and as tasteless as flat soda. Even worse than Honore's previous films. The Alex Beaupain "songs" with their unmelodic melodies and absurd lyrics out of a rhyming dictionary are disgraceful. Paul Schneider tries, yet the script defeats him. Deneuve looks fat; Chiara M, an interesting actress when plump & brunette, makes one incredibly dull anorexic blonde. Honore's worldview consists of loathsome cheap ironies and a perverse sentimentalization of sexual abuse. STAY AWAY FROM THIS CRAP!!!!
