Les Poupées Russes
…Will this be the last?
Five years after their summer together in Barcelona, Xavier, William, Wendy, Martine and Isabelle reunite. Xavier is now thirty. No longer a student, he is not yet a well-balanced, fullfiiled adult either. His career is unsatisfying: far from being the renowned novelist he aimed to be he must be content with little jobs such as reporter or ghost writer. His greatest “achievement” in “literature” is his collaboration to the script of a corny TV soap! His sentimental life is not much better, rhythmed by one night stands and unfinished romances. It looks as if when he seduces a woman beautiful outside and inside such as Kassia or Wendy he can’t keep them. Will he ever bring his life into focus?

At last! Since I discover that the great L’Auberge Espagnole (You’ve information about this movie on the blog) has a sequele I really want to watch it but I don’t find it… until today! The movie it’s great, it’s cool to have the chance of see what happens with the life fiction characthers and how they live now. Although I prefer L’Auberge (this movie is sometimes too complicated instead very well narrated) this movie have brilliant moments and knows how to attract the attention during all the film even though the story it’s not momentous at all. For example, the expected image of the principal charachters of L’Auberge together again takes place at the beginning of the story but it’s not until the middle-end that we know why, when and how. Like this, there’re a lot of examples we can found, as the title say, watching the movie you open the russian dolls but it’s not till the last, the smallest, that you know how all the story ends. Finally, just recommends too the sountracks of boths (L’Auberge Espagnole and Les Poupées russes) and tell you that in YouTube I discover this movie in parts. It’s not the best way to watch this film, but if you want, you can.
