It took me until the last shot to decide for sure that I really quite liked this movie, when it becomes absolutely clear that this movie is purposefully much more about Diane Lane's character and her own inner journey than either of the somewhat silly and inept men who take up a lot of plot consideration and dialogue.
Most of the movie up until that point is low-key enjoyable, but also frequently flimsy and clunky. It goes from soulful and poetic to amateurish-feeling and back regularly.
There are moments where I loved it. Photographs and paintings as windows into a relatable protagonist's soul, and close-ups of delicious-looking food and the gorgeous French countryside.
Also a lot of moments of man-splaining…
