Va Savoir

Unless you really like to be a snob and watch a movie just because it's French, I would not recommend this movie to the average person. Reading through the subtitles (which I personally have nothing against, I'm just looking out for the little people!) is too much of a hassle to get a story about people you'll never care about. The story is an interesting one about a traveling actress's return to her hometown, Paris, where she is reunited with a former flame. Interesting events occur, but I never became emotionally attached to the characters, therefore I could give a rat's petutte about this movie. Don't get me wrong, it's a very good story that is shot and acted beautifully - just don't expect to like it.
