Little White Lies (Les Petits Mouchoirs) is a uniquely French ensemble film that thinks it.s the Gallic version of The Big Chill. Those who love French films will be entertained, but I couldn.t get past one early improbable scene that buttresses one of several plot lines. Tant pis.
The movie follows a group of middle-aged friends who follow through on their vacation plans after one of them, Ludo (Jean Dujardin, who has about as many lines as he did in The Artist), is critically injured in a car crash. Their dilemma is very inconvenient and quickly resolved. They rationalize that a beachside toast to Ludo will have a greater net benefit than keeping vigil in Paris so off they go.
Regular fellow Movie Snobs know I don.t write book reports so I.m not going to break down each character and plot point.
