Pierre Arditi is a very talented actor ,but the dearth of good parts in the contemporary French cinema often makes him work on stage.He resembles Serge Reggiani and the directors could use him with decent material.
Such is not the case with this turkey ! What can he do with the following script? A young woman,who works in an advertising agency .During a cocktail,she cannot tell her friends she 's got no lover ,so she tells them she's the boss's mistress.The following day,as these good friends cannot keep a secret ,everybody's around her ,preparing her coffee or asking for a promotion.Anyway,in this enterprise,nobody seems to work and all the conversations revolve around sex with a lot of dirty words at that.This is a crude movie.
Get Billy Wilder's "the apartment" instead!Or even the unpretentious little French comedy "La Doublure" ....
Wake up,Mister Arditi ,and give us something worthwhile!
