| We are not in wonderland,Alice.
"Le Beau Monde " (=high society) is would be modern cinema ;its lines are often too intellectual ,lacking any spontaneity and absolutely devoid of humor .As for the subject,it's as old as the hills .The characters are rather flat and the actors are bland ,with the exception of Sergi Lopez ,the unforgettable "Harry, the friend who wish you well",who gives a warm performance -the scene when he tells Alice that they come from the same background and they have got to flout the well-to-do snobbish people is the one moment the movie seems to go somewhere.

The Young photographer (from a wealthy family) is the umpteenth version of the post May 68 rich kid ,rebelling against his bourgeois world but doing it cowardly and without reneging on his privileges (playing safe and knowing that mom can pull strings for him).The actresses epitomize wooden acting.

Actually,when it's over,the story could go on and on and on ...Perhaps will there be a part 2,in China ,or somewhere else far from the moms?
