Surprisingly entertaining comedy about love and life lessons. The story revolves around Miou who moves into her recently deceased spinster aunt's apartment with her cousin Donut. There they find a large collection of expensive lingerie. Simultaneously Miou is starting a new job as a lingerie researcher while Donut works in a lingerie store. Hence the title of the film, which also involves a stewardess who lives in the apartment below, the pervert stealing her underwear and the part-time cop looking for him. Each of the young female characters are looking for Mr. Right, each informed by their own version of virtue and morality. This is well-trodden ground but La Lingerie still has qualities to recommend it. The most appealing aspects of the film are it's offbeat sense of humor, fast-pacing and extremely attractive young cast. I would see this film again even though the titilation suggested in the title never materializes. Never goes beyond a PG13 rating. If nothing else, it is a pleasant way to spend an hour and a half.
