Product Description

Erotic French comedy. Graham (Eduardo Noriega) is a young office worker who loses his ability to retain long-term memories after an accident. Taking advantage of his situation, secretary Irene (Anna Mouglalis) begins an intense affair with him, reassuring Graham that although he can't remember the details of their passionate relationship, she'll keep the memories for him until he recovers.

This is really a terrible film. I don't often write reviews but I really want you to save your money (and btw, I have a copy of this film that I'm selling!). As other reviewers have noted, the first half is much better than the second. Almost credible characters, vaguely erotic situations, some sense of a developing plot. It promises to be a slightly charming, if lightweight, piece of european arthouse cinema. Sadly, half way through, everything goes off the rails; what little sense or story logic there was is utterly abandoned. You get the sense that the makers of this film are reaching for some grand philosophical theme, which they never manage to articulate. And in the meantime narrative credibility is ditched, with nonsensical developments and toe curlingly bad dialogue, which culminates for me in a scene where the protagonist celebrates the return of his memory by lying naked on a beach and, apparently, flirting with his own (barely teenage) son. Let's be clear, I'm a big fan of arthouse cinema - this is incoherent rubbish.

This is an interesting film but the subtitles are worse than useless. I am very disappointed in this release as for about every six sentences of dialogue you get one short subtitle. If you don't speak French don't bother buying this.

It starts really good as it's explicit and charming (an odd combo). It's well paced and feels energetic. The romance is very believable and the actors generate a lot of heat between them.

The second half turns into a typical, slightly enigmatic, navel gazing French flick. Also there is no explicit material in the second half. It's not that the second half is bad (I've seen much worse) but more that it veers off in an uninteresting direction.

So the first half is great and the second half is disappointing.

The packaging says that the film was filmed in the large 2.35:1 widescreen ratio, but my DVD played in the smaller 1.85:1 ratio. As far as I can tell everything looked correctly framed so I think it must be a misprint on the packaging.

In the same mode as Momento, but much lighter. Its more of a relationship movie and reminded me slightly of 9 Songs. Its sexy and the 2 leads are beautiful together (and you do seem them in intimate closeup). A good couple film for people who are comfortable with a european style (light) relationship drama.

You will either love it or hate it but the good news is that you can turn the wretched subtitles off and, if you choose to use them, they are unobtrusive as they sit below the image frame.Soundtracks are great as is the picture.Full marks.
