No wonder Bisexual Attorney Alain is confused. He’s bedding his female boss, his guilty of murder client, the client’s hairdresser girlfriend and a precocious boy who knows what he wants and tries to convince Alain that ‘he can have it all’.
While it is definitely true that there are characters that do not experience a 180 degree change by the end of the film, the characters don’t stay the same, either. And since that isn’t the plot point that the movie hinges on, it doesn’t feel like it matters in the end. The majority of the characters come across as very real people, three-dimensional, and not movie-clichés.
The actors are wonderful; there is no hesitation in any of the performances (even in the most revealing scenes). I bought the American DVD, which included a commentary with the director, and actors Pascal Greggory and Cyrille Thouvenin, and was especially delighted to find that they had done the commentary in English.
