After reading several positive reviews for this film I was looking forward to watching it, however, I was left disappointed. I thought that Lola Créton - playing lead character Camille - was good, and there's some really nice cinematography throughout the film, but ultimately I just didn't find it that engaging. I think a major part of the problem comes from the actor who plays the object of Camille's affections - Sebastian Urzendowsky, playing Sullivan. Not only did his character seem two dimensional, but he is also lacking in any on-screen charisma. This makes it hard for the viewer to empathize with Camille's feelings when he leaves for his trip, causing her subsequent unhappiness. It's still an ok film, just not as good as I expected. I would suggest renting before buying.

The French make great movies. I can't ever imagine seeing a British movie like this so stripped down, raw and real with such an enigmatic ending. The film has stunning cinematography and three excellent leading actors. I would have preferred it if the focus had been on Lola Creton's character the entire way through instead of placing unnecessary emphasis on the boyfriend early on and for too long. I would recommend this to people who love real cinema. If you want a movie where people constantly talk for absolutely no reason then this isn't for you as it's thankfully short on dialogue. If you have teenagers I would highly recommend it to them for the honesty of its character portrayals/human emotions/sexual and emotional awakening.

A lovely film and a surprisingly sweet story. Would recommend to those who like rom-coms or romance dramas. Seems like the French really are romantics!
