Pair Of Aces Beats Three Of A Kind
6 September 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

You could argue that this has two strikes on it going in; it's a two-hander so by extension the acting needs to be a couple of notches above very good and plot-wise we've been there before and before and before which means that we really are looking for something just a little extra. For the non-French audience there is the novelty of two new faces for though Marina Fois and Julien Boisselier have respectable CVs they are virtually all in strictly domestic movies (in fact Boisselier can be seen right now in 'Tous le plaisir est pour moi'). Such as it is the plot hinges on Fanny (Marina Fois) who, at thirty-something, has had it up to here with one-night stands and relationships that run out of steam within the month. Her solution - this is, after all, a light comedy - is to invite a guy from work, Paul (Julien Boisselier), to her apartment for dinner and sex though of course he is only hip to the first part. Given a premise like this what you need is charm, laffs, beautiful people and if that's not possible then Doris Day and Rock Hudson. What we get depends very much on the individual viewer. Those who find Fanny's preparations for the evening

  • beginning with planning the meal, ending with secreting a condom


where it will do the most good in the heat of the moment and, in a fit of whimsey, stretching a condom until it flies across the room and lodges in the inside of a Spanish guitar where it will remain until a key moment - 1) hilarious, 2) charming or 3) infantile will react on the same scale to the whole movie. Me? I liked it. Sue me. 7/10
