I still can't believe this was a real store...... I still don't get the girl..... Not the best movie.....

I enjoyed this movie. I think the theme that tied the two halves of the film together was Jeanne's overwhelming need for love. She's blind to everything else and causes serious problems for herself and for other people as a result.

This film's attractive cast are entirely thwarted by their tepid characters & a plot with no dramatic interest whatsoever.

The description sounded promising, the movie was disappointing. Was there a plot? If so, I'm not sure where it went. The first part depicts the girl's relationship with her boyfriend. No one is sure where this relationship (or movie) is going. Then, oops! The director remembers to get to the main hour later. The latter half of the movie is poorly done, more superficial and rushed than anything. Add random, silent scenes of characters doing various things, and one realizes that this movie is neither properly written, developed, editted and sequenced. Also, the title of the movie should be renamed to "The Girl on the Rollerblades" because we see her rollerblading an endless amount of times than being on a train.
