Un groupe de vieux amis de la cinquantaine est confronté à la difficuté de communication. Ils se parlent sans s'entendre. Les hommes sont incompris par les femmes, les pères n'apportent rien aux fils et les couples ne subsistent que tant que le sexe reste l'ultime mode de communication qui puisse fonctionner. Sans lui point de salut.

Il reigne une certaine confusion à identifier les personnages qui nous plonge encore davantage dans un monde où l'autre en sourdine, où les personnages, sans être interchangeables restent tout de même assez innaccessibles.

L'univers désabusé et très drôle de Philippe DJian nous parle de nos histoires et de nos doutes. Sans être caricatural, c'est aussi un bel hommage à l'intelligence féminine. Les males ont du mal à se départir de ces conventions qui les empèchent de vivre.

Tout celà dans un style direct et accrocheur tout à fait jubilatoire. ( )
