    [3.5]--Intrusively Over-directed but a good film.

    When "arty" direction becomes a distraction, it becomes over-done and that's exactly what happens in this film. It also has enough plot holes to drive a Mac truck through. I’d been meaning to watch this for a while, but the cheesy looking cover and the blurb, made me think it would be weak-plotted but that certainly wasn’t the case. The storyline is composed of flashbacks and that didn't affect my enjoyment of this film, despite its momentary confusion! The beginning didn't satisfy me completely, but I stuck with it. At first glance, it appeared disjointed, vaguely incoherent and kind of hard to follow, but as it went on, it became clear that this might be a film I'd have to maybe watch a second time to appreciate it on the level it actually meant to be appreciated on. This can't be described as a perfect film, but, to anyone who can identify with it will certainly interest you and leave you with a number of angles to view it from. All the cast deliver a great performances. Hartnett is entirely believable as the haunted young man, caught up in a whirlwind of romances that threaten to destroy him, with good support from Matthew Lillard as his snazzy best friend, and Byrne and Kruger providing captivating female parts. Although a romance, it didn't feel soppy, more tense actually (you end up hitting a lot of things while watching), until the final scene-which gives you a real warm fuzzy feeling! In case you want to see the original, reverse to L'Appartement. The original actors are Vincent Cassel and Monica Bellucci which isn’t bad, they met and fell in love on the set! You may have noticed the name of the restaurant in Wicker Park...no?... it's Bellucci's )
