Comedy drama
I've read more than one review that refers to the movies of French writer-director Agnes Jaoui as "middlebrow," which may be meant as a respectful euphemism for "middling." Like her previous feature, Look at Me (2004), this relationship drama is mature and intelligent, but the character conflicts are so decorously handled that after a while the whole enterprise begins to seem more like a good waiter than a good story. The best plotline involves a politician (Jaoui) who lets an old family friend (Jamel Debbouze) enlist her in a documentary about successful women; to her growing dismay, their interview shoots are invariably disrupted by his fatuous and incompetent filmmaking partner (Jean-Pierre Bacri). In French with subtitles.
Director: Agnès Jaoui
Cast: Jean-Pierre Bacri, Jamel Debbouze and Agnès Jaoui
