I have seen this movie twice. I actually enjoyed it the first time more than the second, which in my book means that it is not a first-rate movie.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
The story is about two sisters, one a poet (Roxy, played by Naomi Watts) living in France, married to a French aristo, now expecting her second child, when her husband, who seems to be more interested in her fortune than their kid, walks out on her. Roxy`s sister, Isabel (Kate Hudson)comes to visit her sister, and while there, gets entangled in two love affairs, one with a much older French men.
The film doesn`t handle the multiple storylines and characters too well. It jumps all over the place. The casting is good, but I liked the "old" cast slightly better than the young ones. The French actors were also great, but didn`t get a big enough part in the film, which I was sorry for.
I did enjoy the movie, it had a certain French charm to it, which is great, and if you love Paris, it is always nice to get that Parisian flair.
