I can only agree with the previous reviewer "One of best French / English movies I've ever seen."
With a refreshing style this film had me laughing with guffaws and belly laughs within minutes from scene 2 right through to the end.
The plot was simple and the principle characters Fiona Gordon, Emmanuelle Riva and Dominique Abel were a delight.
Although the plot was simple it was embedded with amusing intrigue which ran and ran.
Very well constructed, extremely funny and I will happily watch it again and again.
.. just what did happen to those socks?
