Guillaume Canet's ensemble drama draws together some of the best actors in French cinema for a sort of Gallic "Big Chill" backed by a soundtrack of U.S. pop classics. A clique of friends takes summer vacation at a seaside home while one ("The Artist's" Jean Dujardin) remains hospitalized after a near-fatal traffic accident. They weave a web of subplots about love and insecurity over boating excursions and wine-lubricated feasts, ignoring the deeper problems that sabotage their happiness. The script is banal, but the acting company and the locations are easy on the eyes. (Unrated. In subtitled French.)
