Rated NR
Recent Belgian cinema has leaned toward surrealistic fantasy (Small Gods, The Misfortunates, Mr. Nobody), but you'd never guess that from this vapid 2010 sex comedy, about the stilted love lives of an aging actress, her younger sister, and her two daughters. The glossy cinematography and cloying dialogue are straight out of the current Hollywood playbook, and the movie's take on love and relationships recalls the rom-coms of Nancy Meyers. Director Hilde Van Mieghem occasionally ventures into a more fanciful aesthetic, but only to suit the screenplay's sentimentality, and she fails to make the most of a spritely ensemble. In Flemish with subtitles.
