Sort of a French-Canadian 'Big Chill', but smarter, if less emotional.
There really isn't a plot. For the first half of the film four upscale,
yuppie male friends (one gay) prepare a meal and talk about sex, while
their female counterparts do the same at a gym. The 2nd half is the two
groups sharing dinner, where the talk is more muted, but the personal
stakes much higher.
Probably over-hyped as a masterpiece when it first came out, now
it's often treated too harshly.
The acting is strong throughout, and the satiric point that all the
characters believe themselves self-knowing, but are really all living
in denial and delusion is perhaps a little obvious, but interesting in it's
effect and execution.
