Pierre Salvadori (The Apprentices) directed this mildly subversive 1998 comedy about a con artist's complicated relationship with a pathological liar. Jeanne, a kook from a dysfunctional working-class family, claims that her parents are wealthy; after getting wind of this, young Antoine kidnaps her, and the two eventually fall for each other. This is the third Salvadori film with Marie Trintignant (daughter of Jean-Louis) and Guillaume Depardieu (son of Gerard), and their passive-aggressive puppy love is endearing enough to overcome the narrative gaps and occasionally strained humor.
