Delightful
15 January 2010 | by See all my reviews

Emmanuel Mouret writes, directs and stars in yet another romantic comedy. Before I go in details about this little gem, I should mention that "romantic comedy" has become an umbrella term that encompasses many sub-genres, from deeply romantic films with a light tone to crass humor featuring some form of relationship.

The term romantic comedy as applied to Fais-Moi Plaisir! is definitely of the witty variety. The situations are sometimes comical but never excessive. Much like the director, the main character and his girlfriend explicitly wonder about love, lust and relationships. Although there is much introspective dialogue, it is funny and light. Think "When Harry Met Sally" and you're on the right track.

Mouret is never going to be cast as an action hero but wisely elects for a natural style of acting that makes the whole movie even more endearing. The largely feminine cast around him is absolutely charming and the chemistry seems genuine to us. The shining star for me was Déborah François, who was immediately noticeable even in scenes where she was but a secondary character. As she becomes more involved, you just can't help but almost fall in love with her.

Every far-fetched situation in this film is followed by yet another, always taking a new and odd direction but you're just happy to follow the ride until the end. And make no mistake, although the tone is decidedly light, there are several metaphors contained and also a few homages to comedy classics.

Mouret as a director talks about modern love, using restraint found mostly in older movies. His characters too seem to explore how relationships should work in this modern age. And while the film provides no definitive answer, underneath all the light silliness he does portrait our times pretty accurately.

Strongly recommended!
