| Nevertheless, we have « seen » the Mont St-Michel (Screen)
This movie was actually a sharing of similar experiences about divorce.

But, to be interesting, the cast and the story needed to be good and I admit it was the case: the kids were cool and the parents were believable: I was a little worried about the mother (because I can't stand the actress) and I was delighted as usual by Bernard Campan, who can play everything in his unique and sympathetic way.

For the story, the passing of seasons starting from school beginning to summer holidays is really interesting: you can guess what is coming and wait for the moment.

As for the exchanges, here's a list of all details, big or small, I can relate: school, twin beds, the court procedures, the weekly arrival and departure, Christmas meal, the school trip, the lemon paintings, the plaster, Limoges, the new friends, the dinner, the mother Nicole, the life alone without the kids…

The defect of the movie would be the absent family of the parents and the maybe too gentle relationship that still exists between them: divorce means something is split, broken;

It remains a interesting french movie and a recommended choice.
