This is a romantic comedy about the unlikely encounter between a bartender and with a woman who is constantly looking for a rich boyfriend.
The plot is captivating and delightful! The characters are developed well, and I connect with them greatly. Audrey Tautou is really great in this film. Her range of facial expressions alone is joyful to watch. The memorable scenes of her includes her boredom in bed, the surprise of seeing Jean in the restaurant and many more. She gives a very fine performance in this film! Jean's transformation from a regular guy to a high flier in the elite circle is well portrayed. The wardrobe department must be commended as well, for Audrey Tautou's ever changing outfit. The charm of the high life is well presented in the film. I really like this film.
