Mozart didn't do an opera on an accordion.
A smart & funny romantic comedy!
I saw the movie last night and I really loved it. It's funny and smart.
Vanessa Paradis and Romain Duris form a very glamorous couple on screen
and the supporting roles (Julie Ferrier and François Damiens) are
great. The story is about Alex Lippi (Duris) a con man specialized in
breaking romances. He is hired by Juliette's father to prevent her from
marrying the wrong guy. The things is Alex has only one week to seduce
Juliette (Paradis) who doesn't seem to fall for any of his tricks…
If you're looking for a nice chick flick, you should definitely see
And if you liked this movie, I recommend you another French romantic
comedy called "Priceless" ("Hors De Prix") with Audrey Tautou which is
very good as well.
