It Begins with the End (Ca commence par la fin) (2010)

This would be the French arthouse version of 500 Days of Summer, telling the ins and outs of a failed romance out of chronological order.

Unlike 500 Days of Summer, this isn't really good at all. It's a first film by a director who makes the typical mistakes in storytelling, concept, casting, editing, and so on.

Watch for: every other scene beginning with the first eight bars of the Brandenberg Concerto no. 4, movement 2, as if to signal that you're watching something important and intense.
