The star of Jean-Pierre Jeunet's 2001 hit Amélie, Audrey Tautou is cast in this romantic comedy as Michèle, a 20-year-old model who has just broken up with her boyfriend and is mired in an identity crisis. Although her life appears to be full, she is convinced something is missing, and thus sets out on a mission to inject a bit of spirituality into her life, donning a bindi and dabbling with Buddha. Along the way, she meets François (Edouard Baer), a veterinarian and non-practicing Jew. Before François has time to exclaim "Oy, vey," Michèle is studying the Torah, festooning François' front door with a mezuzah, and asking to meet his parents. Unsurprisingly, this creates some tension between the two, particularly as what initially seemed a passing interest on Michèle's part soon resembles a somewhat disturbing obsession. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, All Movie Guide

...and neither is this movie. by kohnfused1 August 10, 2004 - 9:28 AM PDT

From the two films I've watched with Audrey Tautou (Amelie and He loves me, he loves me not), this movie was by far her worse outing. Let it be known, that it was not due to Ms. Tautou's performance, but more the deficiencies of the script/writing. For one, there isn't enough back story or character development to set up the situations that are currently unfolding i,e the whole movie. The pace was brisk, but without purpose. I was waiting for something good to come of this movie, but it was merely meandering to nothing. Eventually, I had to stop it halfway because it simply could not hold my interest, quite disappointing.
