After a failed attempt at working on a foreign film set, 26 year-old Ana returns to her hometown of Strasbourg. Over the scorching summer that follows, she decides to replace her grandmother’s bathtub with a walk-in shower, eat peas and carrots with ketchup, drive a Porsche, harvest plums, lose her driver’s license, sleep with her best friend and get back together with her ex. In short, over this particular summer, Ana tries to get her life together.
It’s very fresh and often very funny stuff, communicated in a direct, unforced style. The movie is so unconcerned with narrative momentum, however, that the viewer may be apt to forget there’s even a story in the first place. This is not nearly as annoying as it might sound. That’s partly because Ana is such good company.
