A "normal" guy who is married to a hot actress gets worried that she is involved with her costar. This worry turns into jealousy and causes problems in their relationship. This is a story about trust and a comedy about the actions between men and women.
Paris can boast a population of 2,125,246. Of these 1,153,000 are women and 10,000 are actresses. Yvan, a young sports writer, is married to one who is very well known - Charlotte. They try to live a normal life, but her fame makes it difficult - autograph hunters interrupt their dinners, cops about to serve traffic summonses let them off with a warning and a smile when they recognize her, and impossible-to-get restaurant reservations magically appear when Charlotte makes the calls instead of Yvan. All this threatens and challenges his male ego, but Yvan is able to take her stardom in stride. Until, that is, a man at a bar asks him if he gets jealous watching his wife make love in the nude to another man on screen. It has never seriously bothered him before, but the stranger sows the first seed of doubt in his head...Written by

My name is Yvan. I'm 35, a sports reporter. I'm either in a stadium, or here, the news room of Info Sport TV. My chances of meeting an actress were 12 to 1. When I met Charlotte, I saw only her. Now I realize living with an actress is a crazy thing.

This is a nice little movie, but far from the best achievements of the French cinema. The story of a movie star with a jealous husband, and the problems in their marriage never got me too interested, or to worried about the characters fate. It was all too clear where the movie is going from the beginning. I am not a fan of 'romantic comedy' where this film belongs either, and I have seen much better movies in this genre. Also, Charlotte Gainsbourg is not strikingly beautiful as the role demanded, and Terence Stamp is well over the age to trigger an affair interest with a young female star. These casting mistakes, as well as the conventionalism of the movie make of it just a flat and non-interesting experience. 6/10 on my personal scale.
