Petits Fours
4 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

With Valerie Lemercier's third film as a triple-threat (writer-director-actress), Palais Royal still filling the salles in Paris where it has now racked up well over one million admissions it's interesting to turn to her first effort where she was content to give the writing credit to Sacha Guitry and confine her own efforts to acting and directing. Perhaps the most curious aspect is that Guitry died exactly forty years before the film was made in 1997 so we can only assume she has been remarkably faithful to the original which bears all the hallmarks of a stage rather than a screen play (Guitry of course wrote for both mediums)inasmuch as the action is confined more or less to a suite in a luxury hotel in which the eponymous quartet - Lemercier herself, Sandrine Kiberlain, Sergio Castellito and Andre Dussollier, exchange soufflé-light banter and explore the possibilities of l'amour whilst various hotel employees raise and lower eyebrows as and when called upon to do so. For a first effort it's not at all bad whilst falling short of memorable. Certainly watchable.
