This slow-moving film would have been a sleeper-literally--were it not for leads Bouchez and R├ęgnier. They shared the top actress award at the '98 Cannes film fest, and without their fine work, audiences might be tempted to drift off before the story reaches its worth-waiting-for conclusion. These twentysomethings drift from odd job to odd job, room together in a French flat and try to find a love life among both the riffraff and elite.
R├ęgnier's character is an emotional wreck, and watching her try to sort out her often-disturbed life can be tough to digest. But, like a car wreck, it's hard to turn away.
