Much of what goes on in this delightful French comedy drama by Marc Fitoussi remains unspoken, told through body language, humorous subtext and knowing glances. Ultimately it's about yearning, the frustration of routine, and the tantalizing glimpse of life in another place, with another person.

An unmistakably French comedy of manners that also plays well as a universally accessible study of grace under pressure of unforeseen change.
