Rated R · 92 minutes · 2009
A high-powered defense attorney (Fabrice Luchini) and the bodyguard assigned to him during a murder trial (Roschdy Zem) clash over a beautiful, salacious TV weather announcer (Louise Bourgoin) in this frequently hilarious bedroom comedy by the cagey French writer-director Anne Fontaine (How I Killed My Father). Bourgoin is pure sex as she sashays around in wild outfits, coming on to the flabby old lawyer under the stony glare of the tall, trim bodyguard—one of her old lovers. The murder trial and the possibility of a real attack on the attorney nicely offset the sexual gamesmanship, though the movie is badly compromised by a final left turn into serious drama and plot machination. Up until that point, it's an uncommonly shrewd and funny farce. In French with subtitles.
