  • Summary: A portrait of a restless, impulsive Parisiane who throws herself with abandon into relationships with men and women. When she falls madly in love with a man who is happily married with two children, it does not occur to her that breaking up his marriage might be wrong. When he resists, she literally throws herself into the arms of another man to make him jealous and to assuage her wounded pride. Expand

  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. Reviewed by: Fred Camper
    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. 40
    Camille's desperate, destructive antics just don't seem especially cute or funny.
