Bertrand Beauvois, a well-known attorney, is in Monte Carlo to defend a businessman's mother who murdered a gigolo with ties to gangsters. The businessman provides a bodyguard, Christophe, who is thorough and unsmiling. The middle-aged Beauvois is drawn to Audrey, in her 20s, free spirited, a local TV weather girl who once dated Christophe. Although Christophe warns Beauvois to stay away from Audrey, he's hooked and spends every moment with her he's not in court. What's her angle: is she a plant who'll ruin the case; is Beauvois her toy; is she digging for gold; or, is she genuine? Beauvois loves the wild sex but not her promiscuity. Has Christophe failed to protect him?Written by
Greetings again from the darkness. I live a charmed life. Very few things are more frustrating to me than a movie that has one or more good ideas and manages to do absolutely nothing with it/them. Director Anne Fontame has a good track record, but here a few bucks tossed towards a screen writer would have worked wonders.
The trio of prestigious lawyer Bertrand Beauvois (Fabrie Luchini), serious security guard Christophe (Roschdy Zem) and wild child weather girl Audrey (Louise Bourgoin) set the stage for some fascinating interwoven story lines. Instead we get a few good one-liners and a confused mixture of funny and dark.
I am not trying to bash the film as it is enjoyable enough, but it is certainly a poster child for wasted potential.
