Its difficult to make a film with several main actors, say eight, without resorting to stereotype for at least half of them. What the papers refer to as ensemble playing is basically a parade of the usual bints and bounders parading their usual tics and turns, no? Agnes Jaoui's 'Look At Me' might be a sentimental bourgeois parable of arty french folk, but it also has the most incisive characterisation and most subtle script of any film I've seen this year. Worth a go if you're not yet completely cynical.

very refreshing film indeed, hard to know exactly how well done it is as i don't speak fluent french, but all in all it does make you realise the poverty of the UK film industry. The french just do it with such confidence & just don't seem to fuk it up. The agent is a brilliant character as is the lead who has to deal with all these terrible family members and friends. :confused:
