What The Hell Is Wrong With French People

OK the title is a joke. This is really about French films. I saw one the other day which did nothing but reaffirm what had been my semi-jokey (but maybe totally serious) view of French cinema for decades.

That view is, basically: these people are always so fucking miserable when they should be happy, yet the films offer no illumination for why that is/might be. Mais bien sûr!
