A fascinating story of a couple told through five scenes, beginning with their divorce and progressing backwards to their first meeting. It starts off in a fairly disturbing way, but as the film progresses backwards in time you realize that you know less and less about the characters are more is revealed. The film is very carefully structured with a script that cleverly reveals (or hides) information that shapes your perception of the characters and the story. Not as enjoyable as Ozon’s 8 Women, which I loved, but still worth seeing.
