All set-up, no payoff
1 October 2007 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Tonie Marshall's France Boutique is one of those French comedies that feels like an outline for a sitcom that nobody bothered to fill in. Francois Cluzet, looking at times uncannily like a Gallic Dustin Hoffman here, and Karin Viard are the couple behind a French shopping channel whose business and marriage are both drifting towards the rocks, with Nathalie Baye in one of her cameos as a smiling Rottweiller out to steal their business by conning them into offering a duff product, the 'Fear Eliminator,' and picking up the network for pennies in the ensuing financial fallout. The characters all have comic potential – one presenter (Judith Godreche) stars in porn films on the side, a camp production assistant thinks his homosexuality is a big secret, a production designer is into radical art and the odd spot of S&M and a segment director thinks of his promos as cinematic art – but, aside from a memorable promo for a defrosting tile that prompts an on-camera existential crisis about a wasted life – it never delivers any payoff on them. Still, it's easy enough brain-off viewing and does have interesting production design full of primary colours and pastels.
