So emotionally as what I thought these are alike family they care about each other. However, when this evolves into a sexual relationship, Camille sets the rule of not falling in love. At the start of it, I had good feelings about the work despite reading a review that excoriated it for its sentimentality, but alas, as I went on, the combination of cutesy kitsch, cavalier cruelty, and certain stereotypes made for a discombobulated experience that begged for a compassion its fudged in its efforts to deserve. I read a little over pages of this and found that I couldn’t care about any of the characters. Hunting and Gathering by Anna Gavalda.

Hunting and Gathering is a small story about the little things. Pierre Grunstein Nathalie Rheims. Edit Did You Know? Throwing around the words “rape” and “AIDS” without narratively following through on such issues was the final straw, and clinched the rating where it stands. It’s a sweetly understated film about coincidence, circumstance, and how it coalesces into what we live as our lives. Well to sum it up I LOVED the book cover of an opened box of pastels which happens to be the medium I work in , but the book not so much.

Good romantic comedy–with some substance! Zusammen ist man weniger allein by Anna Gavalda. Her worst fear is of dying far from her home and garden. Love Me If You Dare Camille, realising she is in love with Franck, tries to contact him, in spite of his remaining withdrawn.

The only outlet for his humanity is his care and concern towards his grandmother. I identified with the struggle that many of us face in trying to care for someone and trying to earn a living. I would have to say that Laurent Stocker stole the show in this though with his character Philibert – absolutely hilarious, although how anyone is meant to believe that character is not gay is beyond me! Sadly, the film was just a pale echo of that story.

Once again, a book has remained on my shelves for far too long, but then again, I would hope that my younger self would’ve had enough sense to recognize when she was being played for a warm and fuzzy fool.
