Have to admit that this is a cheatster French film as a lot of the dialogue is in (French-accented) English. It’s whimsical and surrealist, all in all, so very Gondry in a good way. I still don’t get Charlotte Gainsbourg but the other characters i.e. everyone from the calendar printing company especially Alain Chabat more than made up for her lacklustre performance. Bonus point: The film was partly filmed in my current neighborhood in Paris !
