La petite Lili

Claude Miller's wan, bittersweet look at an extended family of bickering actors and directors is not without its charms. Miller and coscreenwriter Julien Boivent have a gift for aphoristic, if glib, dialogue, and Nicole Garcia and Ludivine Sagnier do their best to flesh out hopelessly one-dimensional characters. But it remains a decidedly halfhearted attempt to rework the romantic entanglements of The Seagull, with Chekhov's surly young playwright mechanically transformed into a cocky filmmaker (Robinson Stevenin) and his nubile girlfriend predictably dumping him for his mother's lover. In French with subtitles. 100 min.
