This movie was so silly and pointless. When we left the theatre, the general consensus of the audience was "What WAS that?" Binoche's character nags her way throughout the film and you're wondering why James, a total stranger, would put up with any of it. On the other hand, if the couple really ARE married and playing a day-long charade, you have to really feel sorry for how bad and pathetic their relationship is to have gotten to this point. Either way, the characters make it very clear there is no affection there, so why continue the painfully long conversation? This movie couldn't end fast enough. And when it did (finally) of course, it still made no sense at all!
