Review: Un long dimanche de fiançailles

Director Jean-Pierre Jeunet teams up again with the wonderful Audrey Tautou (previous movie Amelie), in a long hope-driven post-war drama. In the same tradition, it’s a bit lighthearted and frivolous story telling, and hence doesn’t ever reach the tear-jerker status. The driving force behind the story telling is more based on facts revealing itself (feeling more like a detective novel) than feelings. Add the subtitles, and you’re lost. With two and a half hours of this, it’s too overwhelming and boring at the same time.6½.
