  • Le Week-End 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 18 Aug, 2014

    First off, it's sold off as a romantic odd-ball comedy, with age, love and experience as ingredients. It is not your standard rom-com with good actors, it's something quite different. It's not a warning, just a pointer on where this film actually goes.
