Un baiser s’il vous plaît

Director: Emmanuel Mouret

France • 2007 • 96 minutes

Often described as a combination of Woody Allen and Eric Rohmer, Emmanuel Mouret was introduced to Irish audiences with his charming Changement d’addresse (FFF 2006). Part screwball comedy, part sophisticated French farce, Un baiser s’il vous plaît follows two best friends: Nicolas (played by Mouret himself) and Judith (his frequent collaborator Virginie Ledoyen). Each regularly confides in the other and Judith is the first person Nicolas comes to when he finds his relationships lacking in physical intimacy. When Nicolas asks if she would help him out by giving him one kiss, Judith decides to give it a try. Unexpected twists and turns in the characters’ relationships mark the rest of this delightful film, which vacillates between burlesque and romantic comedy.
