In this comedy, layers and layers of personal lies provide the glue that holds a trendy, shallow group of Parisians together. The story centers on Ada, a deeply indebted, but promising young fashion designer who has just purchased an apartment with her lover and holds a housewarming party to celebrate. The bulk of the story unfolds episodically as assorted neurotic characters come to call and begin to intermingle.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Talky French comedy is like Woody Allen with an accent -- but minus the laughs."
‑ James Rocchi, Netflix
"These snapshots, if not portraits, of arty Parsian yuppies are worth a look."
‑ Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal International
"Typically brooding, complex French relationship movie, but who knew Bonham Carter could pass for Gallic?"
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
"The various lovers in this French film learn that their relationships need pruning, watering, and weeding."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
