Could’ve been much better
The major flaw with this film is that Harry’s motivation for his patronage of Michel and Claire is never fully disclosed. It obviously has something to do with wanting Michel to start writing again, but I was waiting for the entire film to find out what Harry is really after and I never did. Character-driven stories are all about motivations and desires, and these are lacking in this, a very character-driven film, which harms rather than helps it.
Don’t you wish you had a friend just like Harry?! Well, maybe not…
When the film begins, Michel is in the hot car with his wife and three small kids. It’s summer and there’s no air conditioning…and it’s not surprising the kids are behaving like brats and Michel is at his wit’s ends. When the family stops for a break, Michel goes to the bathroom and there an old acquaintance, Harry, recognizes him…though Michel cannot recall the guy. It seems that Harry is a major fan of Michel and has lots of fond memories of the guy…and Michel is just dumbfounded. Despite this, when Harry invites himself and his girlfriend to their home, Michel agrees and they all have a lovely evening together.
During this evening, Harry inexplicably recalls a poem that Michel wrote when he was a teen. Despite decades having passes, he even remembers this poem word-for-word and Harry decides to take on a new project–to get Michel to begin writing once again. While this seems like a laudable goal, it soon gets strange. First, Harry decides that the hot car isn’t what a writer needs and when it breaks down, he impulsively buys Michel and his family a new SUV with air conditioning!! Given that they barely know each other, this is very strange. Second, Harry isn’t about to stop at just buying his old colleague a car…he’ll remove all the distractions from Michel’s life…whatever they might be!
This is a very dark and enjoyable film. It’s also, in a sick way, a bit of a comedy. Fortunately, it’s unique and keeps your attention- -and it’s well worth seeing–especially for the strange yet satisfying ending. The film is taut, unusual and well written.
