Fun, often (painfully) recognisable, smooth, light and yet heavy, original, striking, colorful and dark, in short, much more precise. And nowhere does the film go astray. As far as I'm concerned, a really atmospheric and high-quality film made by professionals in almost every field. I really liked it a lot.

Beautiful coming of age film and a fine Bening in an interesting setting. Whether the characters discover free love I leave open, because it won't be that revolutionary. Rather a somewhat brave interpretation of what I would imagine about the theme.

I thought the great strength of the film was the characters who each get their attention and depth in the film. Each also fascinating characters that are each intertwined. What their inner bond is with each other is less apparent. It looks like a kind of “Friends” where mutual trust is central.

Here and there some fine scenes with fine subjects about friendship, sexuality and parenting. A touch of drama and melancholy too. A film about a little bit of everything, about everything and nothing, beautifully balanced. Nice!

Yes, this is another wonderful movie. I would always like to see them that way. Three women and two men of various ages live together in a large house. And they all have their own needs, desires and ideas that they help each other with. The film builds up nicely from the very beginning and the atmosphere and appearance are completely my thing. Nicely designed too. Nice dialogues and excellent acting with a lot of special scenes. Definitely a movie I hope to see again. And next time he might get another half star from me.
