"Priceless" is a wonderfully engaging movie starring the eye-catching French actress Audrey Tautou. It is loosely based on the concept of another "Audrey" movie - Blake Edward's "Breakfast At Tiffany's" (1961) with Audrey Hepburn.

Audrey Tautou is marvelous in the lead role of Irène Mercier - a prostitute who catches wealthy older men in five-star locations on the Côte d'Azur. She accidentally meets Jean Simon - a hotel barman humorously played by Gad Elmaleh - and teaches him the arts of picking up wealthy patrons and performing for them - in and out of the bedroom. His lucky patron Madeleine is brilliantly played by Marie-Christine Adam. Her performance is reminiscent of Anne Bancroft's domineering Mrs Robinson in "The Graduate" (1967).

The film is full of twists and turns, it is nearly impossible to predict what is going to happen next. The glamorous location shots of Monaco and the wider Côte d'Azur add a backdrop of glitz and glamour to the highly amusing proceedings.

This version of the film is spoken in French, and has very accurate English subtitles.

Overall, a very enjoyable and entertaining production. You cannot help but compare the two Audrey's - Tautou and Hepburn. Although nobody can match the class of Hepburn, Tautou comes close with her performance in "Priceless".

This is one of my favourite French films. It's lighthearted and clever and I have watched it more times than I care to admit. The music is catchy and Audrey Tautou is superb. Really enjoyed watching the extras on this DVD too, including some amusing out takes.

Tautou looks great but there aren't any likeable characters in this film.

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!

There's not much that is worth saying about this giddy, frothy vehicle for Tautou's looks, it started well but ran out of steam after about forty minutes. A French remake of Breakfast at Tiffany's, with the two protagonists acting as high end sex workers. Granted, it is funny at times, and there are pretty locations. Fashionistas will enjoy it, as will people who are into rom coms a la francaise.
