I must say i am bit out of practice at watching films like this. I appreciate that in these modern times most films hurtle through the door like a man with his hair on fire. This is slow, with few fancy film-making tricks like camera moves or flashy editing. The takes are long, the performances are careful and measured and not much happens or is said. I suspect the acting is very good and we see a nicely-made wooden window get carefully fitted into an apartment window.
A nice film about not being able to have what you desire (love, not a new casement window, that is)

A marvellous movie from Stephane Brize. Wonderful acting from the leads Vincent Lindon and Sandrine Kiberlian. The birthday party scene was priceless when the wife looks at her husbands reaction to Mademoiselle Chambons violin performance and knows whats going on as women instinctively do.

Good DVD, its a very unusual film but quite plausible in a way. I don't want to mention how it is ending as it would spoil the story. I would recommend the film to matter of fact people who believe all dreams could have far reaching consequences.

Very little happens in this impressionistic little French film that is full of silences.

The characters were paper thin (very little is ever communicated between them) and the uneventful story (it is very slight) was predictable and not particularly involving. Having said that, it held my attention very well.

The story could have been done justice in a ten minute short film, but it worked well at feature length. I didn't feel it ever took the p**s with unnecessary long pauses or meandering scenes. Everything in the film justified its inclusion. It's certainly not a riot of colour and base excitement, but it was interesting, thoughtful and mildly affecting with a bit of emotional impact.

I liked it without being bowled over sideways by it.

Love foreign films especially French. This is, in my opinion, one of the best. It's thought provoking and will certainly challenge the term "happily married couple". Watch it with your better half and see what they say. Highly recommend.

Lovely, touching story of a builder and family man's passion for his son's school teacher, the enigmatic Mademoiselle Chambon. Not much is said but lots conveyed by the brilliant pairing of Kiberlain and Lindon. I love those 2 together.
