A How To Book On Adultery?
16 August 2006 | by ParisdemiloSee all my reviews

This wasn't adultery, it was a day of tension-relief and boredom. The street scenes of Paris were good to see if you want to try and recognize some not-so-famous spots you've visited. I do have to say the bordello scene almost makes it worth sitting through the whole film. Too bad that scene ended so abruptly and the others dragged on and on and on and on. I found whether the main character's marriage survived the day or not hard to feel any interest in. Cassel in the bordello scene is worth watching just for that feral twitchiness he brings to every role, but everything else is pretty forgettable.

Who knows what trouble you can get into in Paris in a red suit?
