"Valérie Donzelli is a new wave of her own."

I loved this fun and lighthearted film. It is a testament to Jérémie Elkaïm's acting abilities that I did not realize he played four of the men. He did a great job altering his voice and mannerisms to fit each character. And I loved the idea of his playing each man to show how focused Adele was on her ex. Fun to watch.

I was so sad for Adele, her boyfriend was such a jerk. We don't really learn why he dumped her. What was the reason? Luckiky, she had at least one family member to go to for support. I had a hard time trying to figure out what was wrong with her - down deep inside. she seemed so lovely on the outside. THEN, the fun begins! I was hoping for Pierre to be her saviour. No, wait: maybe it would be Jacques to bring her out of her funk. And finally, Paul. Dear beautiful, sexy, freaky, twisted, perverted Paul. He was like an angel of salvation. And if you think you have this movie figured out so far, GET READY: The ending totally shocked me. I was so suprised, I wanted it to go on and on. Just a fantastic experience I will watch it again. Thank you!

Light-hearted and fell good? Well, the main character is weak and powerless to do anything after being dumped by her boyfriend. What follows is an odd series of events that left me gaping at hte sheer imagination of the story. Every man she meets turns out to look just like her ex-boyfriend. Eventually, all the men she meets accidentially (by fate?) meet each other in less than fortunate situations. The film also doesn't know wheather or not it is a musical (only two songs). At the end of the film, I came away perplexed.
