Jilted by his lover, an emotionally withholding mope (Romain Duris of The Beat That My Heart Skipped) moves back into the cramped Parisian apartment of his divorced father (Guy Marchand) and younger brother (Louis Garrel), an indifferent student but a tireless ladies' man. Writer-director Christophe Honore strives for a lighter touch than in his previous film, Ma Mere, but he confuses ponderousness with drama and for comic relief resorts to hackneyed stylistic devices like fast motion. Garrel's annoying direct address to the camera is the least of this film's problems, which include awkward tonal shifts and a dearth of likable characters. With Marie-France Pisier. In French with subtitles. 89 min.
