It costs me dear (DVD)
24 March 2010 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

As always, another French movie without subtitles so if you are hard-of-hearing, you say bye-bye to the story and you dream a day when subtitles would be legally compulsory! But our "democatric" parliament prefers to pass law for consolidating elites, enslaving Internet or erasing freedom of belief!

Thus this movie transformed in short cuts for me, only looking for the scenes with Geraldine Pailhas because she is among my favorite movie stars. Here, she is Elena, an expensive call girl who maybe falls in love with an abusive penny pincher. It's maybe her first teasing character but she isn't on the front line. Too bad!

For the rest, the penny grinner is funny because of his pains, his duplicity and his misadventures. Beyond, I can't tell anything except that for one time, the story takes place in Lyon and not in Paris. Oh, it's also funny to see a teen arguing with her parents to work in a restaurant because it happened to me without having 8 millions euros waiting!
