Three men, three women, opposites, possibilities, and tastes. Castella owns a industrial steel barrel plant in Rouen; Bruno is his flute-playing driver, Franck is his temporary bodyguard ... See full summary »
A psychologically troubled novelty supplier is nudged towards a romance with an English woman, all the while being extorted by a phone-sex line run by a crooked mattress salesman, and purchasing stunning amounts of pudding.
Paris can boast a population of 2,125,246. Of these 1,153,000 are women and 10,000 are actresses. Yvan, a young sports writer, is married to one who is very well known - Charlotte. They try to live a normal life, but her fame makes it difficult - autograph hunters interrupt their dinners, cops about to serve traffic summonses let them off with a warning and a smile when they recognize her, and impossible-to-get restaurant reservations magically appear when Charlotte makes the calls instead of Yvan. All this threatens and challenges his male ego, but Yvan is able to take her stardom in stride. Until, that is, a man at a bar asks him if he gets jealous watching his wife make love in the nude to another man on screen. It has never seriously bothered him before, but the stranger sows the first seed of doubt in his head... Written by

A cute little French film, although about a quarter of the film is in English. At least it seems to be about (relativly) normal people's problems, and not just a bunch of surly beret-ed existentialists whining about the common man. Charlotte Gainsbourg is quite cute, but seems just a bit lacking to cast as a superstar actress. The farcical nude scene shot is quite amusing. Yvan Attal was OK. It's not always easy to critique a film, or an actor's performance when it is in a foreign language. I may be missing a lot of subtle nuances. But then again, I may not. I'd say it's worth checking out for something a bit different, although it's really a bit closer to Hollywood fare than most French films.
