A Very French Movie

I heard about this movie last October, and I finally had the time to see it. It was, like all French movies, very French :), with situations that make you think you can make a film about anything, with dialogues that may apparently lead to nowhere, while in the end to grasp the essential core of a movie with appreciated actors such as Jean - Pierre Bacri and Agnes Jaoui, not to mention the funny Jamel Debbouze (if the names do not ring a bell, it's because you do not watch French movies): it's a slice-of-life movie. It does not pretend to be anything else than it is, there's no car set on fire or people shot on rooftops (just like in Hollywood movies), it is a normal film about normal people. So, tell me about the rain...
