This slow-moving film would have been a sleeper-literally--were it not for leads Bouchez and Régnier. 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.
Régnier'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.
