I saw this film when I was in Mexico City, I was interested in the film because the cast included one of m favorite French actors, Romain Duris, maybe you don’t think you know him but if you have seen movies like; “Le Divorce”, “L'auberge espagnole”, “Moliere” or “The Beat that my heart skipped", you would remember him. The story is written and directed by Cedric Klapsich. The plot is kind of cliché; While waiting for a heart transplant that could save his life, Pierre (Duris) has his world invaded by his sister Elise played by Juliet Binoche, and her three children. Her performance is no way near her memorable ones in Kievlovski’s “Blue” or Minghella’s “The English Patient”. The awareness of his possible mortality, makes him get closer to his sister and kids, She also develops a kind of badly written affair with a butcher. The film doesn’t hold its promise, besides his cool apartment there are no great shots of Paris even. Is a film to watch at home or on a cold winter night with a good friend.
