This is arguably the perfect film for this time of year. Boy Meets Girl, Boy Gets Girl ... well, you know the sort of thing. Despite racking up about sixty films between them neither of the leads is really known outside France; Jean-Paul Rouve had a small role - a postman - in A Very Long Engagement and in the film he made before this he was Edith Piaf's father in La Mome but neither role marked him out as a romantic lead and his features do nothing to help. Melanie Doutey on the other hand IS a looker and may best be described as an Auèdrey Tautou lookalike with backbone. In terms of story what can I tell you; they meet, have a relationship, part and you don't need to know the rest except for some reason it's the second romantic comedy currently playing the salles in Paris where the ending takes place in Manhattan. If feel-good is your thing, go see; you'll feel good. Trust me, I'm a play doctor.
