Mildly charming French love triangle.
19 November 2005 | by VideoPokerAddictSee all my reviews

Alice (Miou-Miou), a surgeon's assistant, leaves her husband and infant son behind in Paris. Out in the countryside she falls in love with Vincent and has two children with him. She never gets a divorce from her first husband Phillippe and never marries her new lover.

Of course, we all know where this is heading. Eventually the two men find out about each other and some soul-searching and craziness ensues. What it lacks in originality is partially made up for with very likable characters and quality acting.

Simon (Rachid Ferrache), Alice's 10-year-old son, is a genius and he is given the best lines and situations in "My Other Husband". His resourcefulness and political views(!) are hilarious to say the least. However, the uneven script really lets the viewer down toward the latter parts of the film. Without giving anything away, the makers of the film ended up taking the easy way out rather than resolving this love triangle in a satisfactory manner.

"My Other Husband" has a certain charm to it and I would recommend it to anyone interested in a quality French romantic comedy. It's just that the story arc follows the exact line you expect it to and, when coupled with the disappointing ending, the film doesn't make much of an impression. 5/10
