This was very different from Pialat's earlier work. Gone is the more distant, semi-clinical look at life. Though our current caracter might mimic those of his earlier work in certain ways, in that they are far, far from perfect people, they do come off as more quirky, fun and loveable - though it could certainly have been played very differently. We follow the relationship of Loulou (Gérard Depardieu) and Nelly (Isabelle Huppert), both actors are great like usual, Depardieu in particular brings in his loveable lifeliness, despite his pretty lowdown and dirty appearance here. Great stuff. 8/10.
unsettling, irritating, entertaining
