La Moustache - 3

It's an intriguing premise. Marc decides to shave off his moustache, and when no one notices it becomes a question of whose memory is correct and what exactly happened. The film starts out well giving the impression of a comedy, but then soon gets caught up in being too abstract to know what is going on...suddenly Marc is off to Hong Kong. It seems that the point of the film may be that life is more uncertain than we think. But I think that might be a little generous. The film is well made, technically, using sharp images and sound to tell the story. But the plot never seems to pan out, and I was lost.
