Delightfully filmed and acted. Contains possibly the most amusing "nude" scene in all of filmdom. The resolution of the couples troubles at the end of the movie lacked explanation, but perhaps it was simply an argument for "letting it all Delightfully filmed and acted.

The ending is very interesting. Attal plays it happy, but there are still some lingering questions about the nature of Charlotte's relationship with John(Terrence Stamp), which undercuts the lightness of the seemingly pat conclusion. The ending is very interesting. Attal plays it happy, but there are still some lingering questions about the nature of Charlotte's relationship with John(Terrence Stamp), which undercuts the lightness of the seemingly pat conclusion. Unlike a studio film, the guy you're supposed to root for to get the girl, doesn't ingratitate himself to the audience through stammer and profuse eyeblinks or by quotation of David Cassidy's poetry. In actuality, John is better suited for Charlotte, but the heart, ah, the heart has a mind of it's own. Terrence Stamp is very good as a middle-aged actor who likes to tai-chi and seduce married women. He reminds you of the old Jack Palance commercial for Old Spice that went, "Confidence is sexy, don't you think?" Still, the final act feels like a screenwriting drill to get the man and woman together. What was a slight film turned slighter with seen-it-before cliches like the spouse being at the wrong place at the wrong time when it's time for a reconciliation. Expand
