A funny, thought provoking trip to the 1970's

Just saw this film at the VIFF. The opening scene is worth the price of admission and the fast-paced dialogue had me engaged throughout the film. Lots of witty lines and funny gags had the audience laughing. The acting was superb, especially Margot, who had to play her real life role as the director's girl friend and her acting role as Victor's wife in the past. Victor also was excellent playing the down and out jilted husband seeking connection to his past. Overall the tight script and flawless acting makes it one of my favourite movies of the year.

An emotional and funny film that transcends cultures

We play different roles in our lives, and sometimes we forget which one we are playing. The characters speak truths about themselves when acting, and wish they could act like they enjoy their real life. It is a film which is all the more touching because it evokes sympathy (for Victor) without being sad; it is dramatic without being indulgent (Antoine's fierce perfectionism that is distracted by Margot); it is sentimental without being nostalgic (They are not 'lost' in the past, and the pop culture references are spot-on). The script is tightly written and the wit comes through even to a non-francophone audience. It is an immensely satisfying film because all the characters grow, and come to an understanding of themselves and who/what they love in the end, bringing much laughter and tears to the audience along the way. The music is also perfect at each juncture. Bravo.
