The ending made absolutely no sense. First off, the "other woman" was a horrible actress with the depth of a sheet of paper. Literally there were three scenes of the present to wrap up the whole flashback.... except the ending had NOTHING to do with the long duration of the movie. I have never been more frustrated with a movie! How did all these breakups and new relationships happen?! The movie never explained!
There were four great beauties in this film; the main character, his wife, Canada, and the featured architecture. I enjoyed this. It is made in that French film tradition that is more about the subtleties and nuances of relationships than it is about ultimate meaning or plot.
Not bad. I would have like more of a story line. Felt rushed.
Beautifully filmed. Unfortunately, the only emotional content of the film was the scenic and architectural beauty. Everyone, except the old building contractor, was bereft of any emotional depth.
Handsome wooden buildings, filled with handsome wooden people, reciting handsome wooden dialogue.
