Albertine's parents are actors from Paris, and they are most insistent that on this night, the Skylab will fall from the sky, and it will either fall in Australia, or Brittany! To be sure of Albertine's safety, they insist that she sleep inside the house. Throughout the film, we'll see many more decisions made that look more than a little oddball, but in the hands of director Julie Delpy, the film maintains a sure narrative footing. The cast represents the very best of old and young French talent, and the joie de vivre of the gathering is infectious. It's a funny, tender and occasionally outrageous look back to the end of the 70s, to childhood, to summer holidays.
