    A real snoozer. Most of director Assayas' films suffer from languorous pacing and this is no exception. Poorly written and directed, the film features a bland performance by all the leads, except for Nick Nolte and Beatrice Dalle, who are the only two who make an impression. Full of cliches about drug-addicted musicians and the people who love and loathe them. The only redeeming A real snoozer.

The only redeeming aspects of this are the performances of Nolte and Dalle, and a decent soundtrack, which kept us from falling asleep. Expand

  1. Can a misguided adult start afresh with a new set of values and priorities? This ambitious drama, directed by one of France's most resourceful filmmakers, explores that crucial question in depth and detail.

    Bit of a mediocre drama from writer-director Assayas despite some good turns, not least from Nick Nolte and Beatrice Dalle.
  3. It's not so much a movie in three acts as three movies stuffed into a single casing, and often showing the strain.
