+ high-res version

Watched: 18 December

A light-hearted, Paris-set comedy by writers/directors/stars Fiona Gordon and Dominique Abel that thankfully doesn’t outstay it’s welcome. The humour here is pitched somewhere between Tati and Mr Bean, though doubtless the filmmakers would prefer the comparison to the former; I’m afraid that for me it fell short, and I found its kookiness more than a little irritating. Still… it contains one of Emmanuelle Riva’s last performances and it’s hardly the kind of film you can be too offended by. It’s just not my bag. (*½)
