Storyline

Pierre, 44, contentedly divorced, takes his teen daughter to the Côte d'Azur along with his friend Jacques and Jacques' own teen daughter, Françoise. On the topless beaches of Saint-Tropez, Jacques and Pierre discuss marriage and being parents. Then, in a wild moment at a nighttime party, Françoise starts playing with Pierre, and one thing leads to another: they become lovers. After a couple of trysts, Pierre wants out, but Françoise declares her love for him and wants to tell her father about it. She does, but leaves out Pierre's name, so Jacques enlists Pierre's help in identifying who seduced his daughter. What will Pierre do? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Fun in the sun; little guilt
23 December 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Claude Berri could be counted on to turn out solid entertainment. Tchao Pantin was a great vehicle for Coluche, Manon des Sources was terrific for Daniel Auteuil's and Emmanuelle Beart's careers, as well as providing a fine part for the aging Yves Montand. Un Moment has the same formula: a good script plus the visual appeal of the Riviera provide enjoyment.

Marielle, tall and graceful, and Lanoux, shorter and bull-like (remember him as the lover in Cousin, Cousine) play well off each other. Christine Dejoux, with her hawk nose and easy wit, does a fine job as Marielle's lover. Agnes Soral is even more darkly unhappy than Demi Moore was in the remake.

If I were doing this story, I'd have a cast switch: Michelle Pfeiffer and Lorraine Bracco as the parents, Hayden Christenson and Emile Hirsch as the kids. I sometimes feel we need to challenge the patriarchal culture of Hollywood, make it possible for two middle-aged women to have as much fun as men.
