Release Date: April 8th (NYC-Paris Theater)
April 22nd (NYC-Quad Cinema)
Directed by Yvan Attal.
The Cast: Yvan Attal, Charlotte Gainesbourg, Alain Chabat, Emmanuelle Seigner, and a very special cameo.
In French with subtitles.
Basic Premise: A married couple (Attal and Gainesbourg) struggle with infidelity.
Entertainment Value: The highlight of this wonderfully fresh and charming film is the comedy. Fortunately, the comedy is anything but low-brow or offensive comedy. The biggest surprise, which definitely will put a smile on any face, is a cameo of a very popular American actor. The performances of Attal and Gainesbourg are very good; it helps that they are married in real life.
Spiritual Value: The examination of infidelity is interesting and provocative, especially when both man and wife experiment with it. The characters are believable and the situations are mostly touching and realistic--although there is a fairy tale aspect to it, especially given the title of the film.
Insult to your intelligence: None.
Number of times I checked my watch: 0
The Bottom Line: A very funny romantic comedy with pleasant, likeable French actors and a wonderful cameo that makes the movie well worth your time.
Recommended Way to Watch: Movie Theater (1st Run)
