In multiple places, instead of having, for instance a chief ('chef') machinist, assistant machinist, and so on, the first person after the 'chef', in keeping with the cooking theme, is the 'sous-chef'. See more »
I can see how this movie would be an easy target for criticism. It might appear fluffy and without depth, sort of easy and implausible.
But I think it's better than that. First of course, are the performances. Both actors are terrific and both have long been favorites of mine. A special call-out, though, has to go to Binoche, who just couldn't be any more delightful. An absolutely fantastic actress. She's so wonderful, the only problem in the movie is why doesn't he fall in love with her any faster?
Second is the basic intelligence of the dialog. The conversations are very engaging, occasionally wry, sometimes sweet, with some sharpness along the way.
Finally, there is a meditation in here on film in general, and romantic comedies in particular. The movie is able to move back a bit, consider itself, and resist the temptation to be cynical.
