A trailer for this film is used in UK cinemas as part of the "Don't let mobile phones spoil your film" campaign run by the telecoms company Orange. The English subtitles have been replaced with new phone-related dialogue and the music in the disco sequence is replaced with a ringtone version. See more »

While the movie has been used for the orange ads (in the UK, they took the trailer I think and put English subtitles that make it look like an ad), it is far more than that. Then again it might be less than you expect, considering the director. But it is a very "normal" movie for Ozon, so don't expect anything to crazy.
Still the story is good, the actors are very good and it is a good comedy overall. The title does get explained in the movie too. And our lead actress might need a push, but you will see that she is anything but a potiche. And I guess the theme of strong women is something that you can always expect from Ozon (so there is something to recognize him by).
