CGiii Comment

She's Vegemite. The film is Marmite.

Anaïs is always late. She runs everywhere. She gets what she wants. She cares for no-one but herself. Seemingly, she's 'charming' euphemistically speaking. She's irritating. She's annoying. She's overtly high-maintenance and she's an absolute bore! So...what's her discombobulating allure?

Frankly, who cares!?! She's exhausting.

This is the French [bisexual] equivalent to The Worst Person in the World [and, she was too]...both films have received an overwhelming amount of incredulous critical praise, the only problem is...both are labelled as being comedies and yet not one genuine laugh is to be had from either film.

Love it. Loathe it. Either's a forgettable, unfunny comedy.


The(ir) Blurb...

Anaïs is thirty and broke. She has a lover, but she’s not sure she loves him anymore. She meets Daniel, who immediately falls for her. But Daniel lives with Emilie – whom Anaïs also falls for. This is the story of a restless young woman. And the story of a profound desire.
