Isabelle Huppert may be approaching self-parody as an icon of Gallic frigidity, yet the talented writer-director Anne Fontaine puts that to excellent use in this broad, obvious, but consistently funny bedroom farce. A haughty gallery owner (Huppert) clashes instantly with the vulgar workman (Benoit Poelvoorde) who is the single father of her son's favorite schoolmate; her elderly husband (Andre Dussollier) invites the man to stay with them as he remodels part of their house, and you can take it from there. Fontaine is one of the few current French directors capable of pulling off both heavy drama (How I Killed My Father, Entre Ses Mains) and rowdy comedy (The Girl From Monaco). Nicolas Mercier cowrote the script. In French with subtitles.
