Little White Lies

If you are bored of the standard Hollywood summer movie fare, here is something for you. From the young actor/director Guillaume Canet (who also directed one of my favourite films of the last few years), this is a sober look at love, friendship and selfishness, with an amazing ensemble cast. I guess you have to use a French word to describe French cinema.

  1. Well, maybe recent French cinema is not for me, but I found the caracters a bit too streched and forced for reality with all possible twist that you can find represented. To my taste it looks quite unrealistic. Now living the cinematographic comments behind – really would you even go on holidays with “friends” like that ?
    I will have to pass on this film for now.
