Could have been a lot better...
When I first watched this film, in French only with no subtitles, I thought that my French got a little rusty because many things did not make sense.
Then, I watched it again, this time with subtitles. Good news: my French is not rusty. Bad news: the film makes no sense, or very little sense.
Even the genre is hard to pin: it feels like it may be a comedy, or romantic comedy with quite a bit of drama... or... I don't know.
Then there is a plot which revolves around a house that should/could be inherited by more than one person... all made more complicated by machinations of various individuals. But, even that part does not make much sense (cannot go into details without it being a spoiler).
And then, finally, we are supposed to believe that people just fall in love, because, you know, it helps move the story forward.
Too bad, because there were a few decent scenes and overall, performances were quite good. But the essence of this film is simple put - poor. Not believable, not engaging.
In the end, the film left me completely indifferent. At least actors were good. That's the reason I did not give it 1 star but 3.
