Storyline

Having stayed on as a wartime handyman in Le Palais Oriental after being born there, Petit Louis has become immune to the charms of the working girls. Then Marion arrives and he is completely smitten. Feeling he is not the sort of romantic figure she deserves, he encourages a relationship between her and shadowy Dimitri Josco while also fostering her singing talent. As the war ends and the authorities close down all bordellos a strange triangular relationship develops, complicated by Dimitri's black market past. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Well, even Leconte can't get it right every time....
4 June 2006 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Rue des Plaisirs is one of Patrice Leconte's occasional misfires. Framed as 'Pigalle Dany Rose,' with a trio of streetwalkers on a rainy street relaying the story of the son of a whore who determines to find the right man to make the new girl at the brothel where he was raised happy, there's more than a touch of The Hairdresser's Husband to it, not least in the intercutting of Patrick Timsit's character as man and child, but there's none of the sensuality despite some potentially promising setups. Among the chief problems is Laetitia Casta, who simply lacks the presence or allure to make the role work: her manner is generally sullen, her acting poor and her singing voice weak, so it's hard to see what the attraction is for such a one-note personality and little surprise that there's not a hint of chemistry with either of her leading men. Still, as Leconte has said in the past, the advantage of making relatively short feature films is that if you bore the audience, at least you don't bore them for that long.
