Shot prior to Audrey Tautou's star-making performance in Amelie, this pleasant but flawed 2001 romantic comedy casts the adorable pixie as a spiritually starved fashion model who converts to Orthodox Judaism to please her new beau, a Jewish veterinarian (Edouard Baer). French writer-director Pascale Bailly begins with a series of blackouts touching on the heroine's aborted pregnancy and attempted suicide, none of which has any place in this banana cream pie of a movie, and the narrative is punctuated with title cards from the heroine's diary, a pointless conceit given her clear lack of self-knowledge. But the script, cowritten by Alain Tasma, makes some interesting observations about how people's religious feelings are influenced by their relationships with their families. In French with subtitles. 95 min.
