| Girl meets boy, and falls in love
Here is another example of sentimental comedy. Yep, you might say, well, here's just one more girl-meets-boy situation, but... The main character, Irene, or Irène as it is spelled in French, is a not-that-young girl, living what seems a free life, and why not, apparently enjoying her life. Her friends (girls!) comfort her in living her life as it is. But... When love strikes, no one is ever able to know in advance where or when it will. So does Irène, who then has to question her attitude toward men in general and toward this particular one. This movie is the first "long" by director Eric Calbérac. It features nicely described characters, be they Irène's parents or workmates. Though dealing with a classical situation, it is worth seeing, it being without any pretense, as it does not put forward any theory about the rite of mating among civilized human beings. The characters are but ordinary people, they live nearly ordinary lives, and fall normally in love. It reminds me of my own feelings when I met the love of my life, with whom I wanted to live and whom I did miss every second we were apart. When I see this movie, I fall in love again, and I want everyone around me to be in love. Thanks a lot, Irène, and Eric Calbérac as well for making me feel like this. By the way, I'm French too. Will any one from abroad venture into commenting this film?
