Parker Posey and Melvil Poupaud form a cross-Atlantic indie film dream team in Zoe Cassavetes’ sparkling romantic comedy for latent depressives and the chronically lovelorn. It’s Sex and the City with a dose of Xanax and a hit of ’30s screwball charm.

the reason to watch this movie is Parker Posey. i'd be thrilled if Zoe Cassavetes made another movie in the near future, because much like James Grey's Two Lovers... this one punched me in the gut in terms of how real it felt, and how much it mirrors my feelings about relationships from time to time. it starts out sad, then becomes pretty hopeful. not too crazy about the third act, but still the rest! GRADE: A-
The depression, anxiety, and the absolute suckage at relationships - all of which I can relate to, so this film is quite poignant for me right now. Plus, hello - sexy French man alert: Melvil Poupaud! The soundtrack is brilliant - especially "Broken English" by Paris-based Scratch Massive who wrote and performed the song for the film! The film score was recorded and mixed by Pierre-Yves Casanova and Nicolas Borne.
