Arcand's sex dramedy is one of the great thoughtful films of the 80s; it's hard to believe that a bunch of Montréal intellectuals cheating on each other and talking at length over dinner about their infidelities could be so absorbing, but it is. The kind of movie that Woody Allen stopped making years ago. Arcand revisited and deepened the characters 17 years later, in The Barbarian Invasions.
