C'est Magnifique!
27 November 1998 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

Wonderful film! Clara (Kristin Scott Thomas) and Jean (Michel Albertini) are a wealthy society couple. Unfortunately, since Jean travels constantly for his business, Clara is neglected. She inadvertently draws the attention of Jean's business partner's 17 year old son, Virgil (Thomas Langmann) and they begin an affair. The film is very funny and quite touching -- also very important in Scott Thomas' career as it was one of her first starring roles in French films. She subsequently won several awards for her work in this film.
