Quirky comedy with attractive cast
20 May 2009 | by VStarkwellSee all my reviews

Surprisingly entertaining comedy about love and life lessons. The story revolves around Miou who moves into her recently deceased spinster aunt's apartment with her cousin Donut. There they find a large collection of expensive lingerie. Simultaneously Miou is starting a new job as a lingerie researcher while Donut works in a lingerie store. Hence the title of the film, which also involves a stewardess who lives in the apartment below, the pervert stealing her underwear and the part-time cop looking for him. Each of the young female characters are looking for Mr. Right, each informed by their own version of virtue and morality. This is well-trodden ground but La Lingerie still has qualities to recommend it. The most appealing aspects of the film are it's offbeat sense of humor, fast-pacing and extremely attractive young cast. I would see this film again even though the titilation suggested in the title never materializes. Never goes beyond a PG13 rating. If nothing else, it is a pleasant way to spend an hour and a half.
