A real gem!
on 3 November 2008
What a wonderful film! Audrey Tatou (of Amelie fame) is an excellent actress and shines in this film. She looks stunning throughout.
Audrey Tatou is Irene, a lady or questionable morals, who is a gold digger, meeting men and spending their money on a lavish lifestye - jewelery, clothes, hotel suites etc. One night she meets Jean, played by Gad Elmaleh, who is a waiter she mistakes for a wealthy man. Not wanting to reveal his true identity he pretends he is rich. When Irene finds out she is not pleased but by this time Jean is smitten and willingly spends his life savings trying to give her what she wants. Irene willingly takes it all and then dumps him when the money runs out. Stranded in a hotel with no way to pay the bill, Jean finds himself an older woman and soon finds himself in Irene's business!. As Irene teaches Jean the tricks of the trade she starts to realise that some things in life are worth more than money!
This is a touching and very funny comedy. the actors are flawless and the locations are beautiful. If you like French language films or romantic comedies this film is a must, you wont be dissapointed!
