This is labelled as a romantic comedy but I am struggling to see why. I really love this film, but there is nothing remotely funny about it, apart from when Alexandre does his 'Mrs Don't Hang Up' impression.
To me, it just feels like a 'slice of life' film that brilliantly captures life in a new towns like Cergy-Pointoise. You can really feel the loneliness of some of the characters (particularly Blanche) trying to make do on their own in a place that has no history and is trying to establish itself.
If anything, the situation and what the characters do to each other is far from funny. In real life (yes I know this is only a movie), this sort of situation usually destroys friendships.
Please do not reply to this thread with abusive messages. I am just interested to see if others would put this into the romantic comedy genre or somewhere else?
