  1. Positive: 9 out of 12
  2. Negative: 0 out of 12
  1. A beautiful film that flows with a luminous ease and assurance.
  2. A delight, a vigorous, vibrant romantic comedy that mines emotional desperation and frustration for all its comic potential, but never at the expense of its temperamental heroine.
  3. 80
    Takes its shape from (Viard's) performance, which is as big as life.
  4. 70
    Effective portrait of an independent woman with a troubled and unstable sense of herself.
  5. Unpretentious and often witty, it's emotional punch is weakened by spotty performances, especially from Karin Viard in the lead role.
  6. Things stay standard-issue French self-analytical from here.
  7. Camille's desperate, destructive antics just don't seem especially cute or funny.
