very delightful and entertaining romp into Parisian lifestyles and love.
If you want an accurate look into the Parisian lifestyle and attitudes then I recommend this film highly.I gained a true sense of what is often perceived as French snobbery and was able to turn this around to realize the common acceptance of such attitudes by the French as normal and status quo. The scenery in this film is stunning as well as the true beauty of the French people as a whole.Their over indulgence in fatty and rich foods is honestly portrayed here as well as their zest for healthy sexual appetites.It is no doubt that not all Parisians think or act as the characters in this film do but the characters were without a doubt very realistic and quite plausible. The ending is typical and needed to be as it was in order to maintain an overall sweetness that is this movie...L'homme de ma vie. p.s. The subtitles lend to the authenticity of the language it was shot in and do not in any way detract from the films overall charm.I highly recommend this film to anyone who is looking for a small getaway from their own culture and attitudes even if just for the two hours or so that the film runs as you won't be let down at all.
