Less plot than a 23-minute episode of Dates on the CW: not good for a nearly two-hour long movie. Even Blue is the Warmest Color was a narrative powerhouse compared to this. They don’t do much, but the pair of likable characters — and a great cabaret sequence — lift Une Nouvelle Amie to 4/10.
PS – The title translates as A New Girlfriend, so a miss right off the bat. A minor quibble with the marketing, but it’s one of those things that annoys me. On the plus side, I like the 1950’s/60’s-esque poster graphics.
