Glossy French Romance disappoints.
22 March 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The cast made this seem like a good proposition. I try to watch anything with Roschdy Zem on principle. Production values are handsome

  • nice titles, sharp bright colours, unfamiliar settings and personable

players. I settled back for an agreeable couple of hours at the movies but as this one ran it became more and more irritating.

Divorced Viard is a Skills Assessment officer handling a batch of new unemployeds from the local My Toy factory. Uneasy among them is Devos, who turns out to be the co owner with husband Roschdy of the out of town Moulin Blanc epicure restaurant. The two women involve each other in webs of deceit which are embarrassing rather than funny, involving or plausible.

Devos and Zem are pretty much indestructible but all the good living fantasy they are involved in is unworthy of them.
