The French have a flair for romance and comedy.

Irene (Audrey Tautou from “Amelie” and “A Very Long Engagement”) is a beautiful temptress with expensive tastes. She is on the prowl for a rich, older man with an unlimited, gold-plated credit card.

Her ultimate goal is to be set up for life as a trophy wife. She is tired of bars, miniskirts and false smiles.

Jean (Gad Elmaleh from “The Valet”) is a shy, amiable hotel employee who walks dogs, tends bar and waits tables. In a late night meeting, Irene mistakenly assumes Jean is a millionaire playboy. They spend the night together in a penthouse suite. When Irene discovers his true identity, she abandons Jean.

The love-struck Jean pursues her to Nice and puts on a charade to impress her. He becomes a gigolo to a wealthy widow.

Tautou and Elmaleh make a dynamic screen couple with infectious camaraderie and charisma. You will be cheering for them to find a way to wind up in each other’s arms.

This little gem is funny, charming and delightful. The French scenery is magnificent. You can almost smell the aroma of the exquisite French food and wine.

The petite Tautou wears killer outfits that accentuate her lovely figure.

The witty dialogue is in French with English subtitles. Now showing exclusively at the Rio.
