Editorial Reviews

Review

Mouret marries Rohmer s visual lucidity and love of smart dialogue to the sort of screwball-comedy antics that wouldn t have seemed out of place in the films of Lubitsch or Hawks, and he does it all with a beguiling lightness of touch. --Scott Foundas, LA Weekly

Expert, intricate, ineffably droll, ultimately provocative and entirely enchanting. --Joe Morgernstern, The Wall Street Journal

Irresistible, enchanting... with a surprisingly sober twist. --Caryn James, Marie Claire

Product Description

Wry, observant and touching, Shall We Kiss? is a very contemporary meditation on the myriad implications of a simple kiss. When Gabriel and Emilie meet by chance, he offers her a ride, and they spend the evening talking, laughing and getting along famousl

Questioning morals, values, and feelings in this one.

I love that element of unpredictability, and as the movie progresses you become progressively more intrigued by these characters.

Format: DVD
I rented this movie not really knowing what to expect, and not really expecting much. Foreign movies that do make it onto a video store shelf do tend to be of a good quality.

Set in Nantes, a man randomly meets a woman looking for directions to a taxi, attractive, elegant, desirable as a French woman can be. He walks away but then changes his mind, and offers her a ride. She is in town for only a day, and lives far away. When they arrive at her hotel, he says goodbye and then turns to walk away, and again changes his mind.

They engage, and have a stimulating encounter in a restaurant, and the parallel story of why they can't engage further emerges, and I must admit this story had me hooked all the way through, and you wonder what will happen right to the end, as the fate of one story hangs on the other. I love that element of unpredictability, and as the movie progresses you become progressively more intrigued by these characters.

This is definitely one of the more interesting foreign movies I have seen. The 4 beautiful French actresses are amazing, and give great elegant and poised performances. I hope you find this review helpful. Go ahead and watch it. I think you will love it, and I am still thinking about this movie days later. Subtitled.

Format: DVD
In this movie, Emilie meets Gabriel on a business trip. They are obviously attracted and spend a pleasant evening talking. Saying goodbye, Gabriel asks for a kiss. Emilie refuses -- and says she has a reason. She knows what one simple kiss can lead to. She proceeds to tell the story of her friends, Nicolas and Judith.

Judith is apparently happily married, Nicolas is her best friend. His girlfriend has left him and he craves physical affection. Can Judith help him out, scratch his itch, as it were? Of course she can. The two proceed to embark on the weirdest love scene I've seen in some time. "May I touch your left breast?" asks Nicolas. "Help yourself," replies Judith (or words to that effect). "And your right breast?" "Be my guest." Never have a couple spoken to each other so much, and so politely, while making love. Eventually it boils down to a kiss -- and abracadabra, magic ensues.

Now Judith has a problem. Making love to Nicolas is an itch she can't stop scratching. They try to do it badly, mechanically, without feeling. It makes no difference. It's still fantastic.

We follow these absurd people and their absurd dilemma with amusement, noting that this kind of movie could only happen in France and in French. I never lost interest -- and yet never got too invested in the characters and their endless talk.

C'est tres amusanat, assez drole -- and a little silly.

"Shall We Kiss?" is a curiosity, and a very watchable one. It seems like a chatty, elegant French romantic comedy-Eric Rohmer Lite, perhaps, or sexier Woody Allen-until it takes an apparant turn for the melodramatic. Behind the melodrama, though, is a further layer of subversive parody, and behind that is a real knowledge of the power of desire. Yet the whole thing's weightless: An upscale date-movie bonbon that keeps yielding pungent aftertastes.

Very mature, very French look at human desire, a little tragi-comedy of how easily desire involves us in the endless game of musical chairs called love.

Format: DVD
Shall We Kiss is a charming exploration of desire and attraction. I wouldn't call it a romantic comedy, more a quirky lighthearted drama about relationships. The pace is slow and there is a lot of dialogue, but the film is never boring; on the contrary, the terrific acting makes the chemistry between the characters very believable and compelling. The plot intertwines the changing relationship between a man and his married female friend and other women in his life, and an encounter between strangers. The characters exhibit a lot of tenderness and vulnerability. The classical score adds warmth and charm to the often awkward encounters between the characters.
It isn't clear from the item description if only dubbed English audio is available, or if the DVD also has the original French audio with subtitles.

Format: DVD
If you read Candide, you remember Pangloss' contorted reasoning and idiotic explanations. I have refused to see this movie because of the stupid title ("Shall We Kiss"), which by the way is more like "A kiss, please!" in French. A much more provocative and accurate title would have been "Playing with Fire," which is the subject of this gem of a film, looking beyond marriage for love.

Now back to Dr. Pangloss... If you know the French, they discuss philosophy and phenomenology endlessly, and they are so polite (until they turn and insult you). So this lovely film is a pastiche of how the French intellectualize everything. The quartet of actors is top-notch and endlessly amusing, and the script is brilliant. Enjoy the quiet laughter - this is a masterpiece... best thing to come out of France in years. If you don't believe me, see it on Amazon Prime first. Enjoy!

BTW, if you liked this you will have a GRAND time watching the adorable and hilarious Audrey Tautou in one of the funniest comedies I can remember - Priceless. It keeps getting funnier and you won't succeed in suppressing your laughter, which will get loud at times. She has no job and goes cruising for elderly rich men until she bumps into a hotel worker who pretends to be well-heeled. To keep up the deception, he is forced to deplete his IRA! Hahaha!
