As adults, best friends Julien and Sophie continue the odd game they started as children -- a fearless competition to outdo one another with daring and outrageous stunts. While they often act out to relieve one another's pain, their game might be a way to avoid the fact that they are truly meant for one another.

To celebrate his wedding anniversary, Jean-Pierre buy her partner an English bulldog of 4 months "Trésor". Nathalie is delighted and engaged in a deep and loving relationship with the pet. But having a pet at home brings difficulties.
Excellent actor performance concerning 3 of the 4 main actors. Aurelie Tautou was just good but not excellent. - The people in the story are kind of sympathetic.
Everything else. First, when I watch a movie, I don't want to think about how the movie is done. About, is the acting is good. I just want to enter into the movie. Live the experience with the people I see. Or if you want to make a movie in order to think to something, just do a dreaming-like movie à la David Lynch.
The realization of this movie is simply horrible. When you watch this movie, you think about the camera movement. Terrible as in bad TV french series with small budget.
Actors: Main actor are very good. But for almost each second role, the acting is just plain bad. In the first 10 minutes of the movies, I noticed at least two actors (second role) that were very _bad_. I believe I am a very nice public. Even mid-good actor can make the trick with me. But, this time it was like: we play like if we were in a theater not in real life nor movie. May be this impression is only in VO (French).
Concerning the story: I don't dislike slow movies in general. I love Japanese very long movies where nothing occurs for 1 minutes on the screen. But when this kind of thing occurs in slow movies, in general this is for a good reason. There is a "hidden" message or at least a stunning view. In this movie, there is nothing like that. The number of scene that could be trashed is simply enormous.
But this one was just completely boring. There is no plot. This is not a joke. There really is no surprise in the entire movie. No "action", no changing "event". The most vivid moment of the entire movie is when Camille (Aurelie Tautou) drop a radio by a window because she is angry. The rest of the story, is something you can see every day.
The message: "Socialize and you will live better". OK, I get it. I didn't need a complete movie with this only one message.
If I was alone, I wouldn't have watched this movie until the end. Even if the character are attaching and the actors are excellent, this is just not enough to save this movie. There are so many realization errors that I was "pop out" of this movie too much.
