Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Al (Francois Cluzet) and Elsa (Juliette Binoche) have been a couple for some time, now, but the chances that their relationship will be long-lived are few. For one thing, Al is apallingly dependent on Elsa for his every emotional need. For another, Elsa is an incredibly elusive person, extremely difficult to pin down about anything - especially whatever is bothering her. How they have managed to survive this long is a cause for wonder. When Al gets an opportunity to be cast in a movie role, complete with no-cost occupancy in the casting agent's ugly but fashionable apartment, he jumps at the chance to provide a little material satisfaction for his beloved Elsa. However, she has more in common with the Cheshire cat of Alice in Wonderland fame than anyone ever imagined.
