It's a French Farce. They're very good at it. It makes me cringe, all to visibly
and to Kate's great embarrassment. I want to yell out, "No, don't buy 500€
worth of flowers in the vague hope that it will set up a meeting between a no-hoper
and his ex-partner who doesn't really want to see him." In part because I feel
one living the farce, sometimes, constantly saying "yes" to more
projects and letting problems fester and get out of hand because I haven't the
courage to sit down and solve them. I don't need any more of a reminder that
sometimes my life looks like a disaster and I the wilful instigator of it.
But the acting is brilliant, the story clever, the women beautiful and the men
masculine and French, and it's all rather neat. It's worth seeing.
