Product Description

While traveling to Nantes for one evening, Emilie meets Gabriel. Equally seduced by one another, but both otherwise committed, they know they will probably never see each other again. He would like to kiss her. She as well, but a story prevents her from doing so: that of a married woman and of her best friend who were surprised by the effects of a kiss. Of a kiss that should have born no consequences. (Music Box Films/Metacritic)

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

By Inkhorn VINE VOICE on April 15, 2010
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.

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.

I was browsing my local library's foreign movie section the other day and fell upon this French movie. Didn't know much about it but was intruiged enough to pick it up.

"Shall We Kiss?" ("Un Baiser S'il Vous Plait"; 102 min., originally released in France in 2008, finally released in the US in 2010) brings several stories within a story. Gabriel meets Emilie by chance when she is on a business trip in Nantes, and they hit it off immediately. Gabriel wants to kiss Emilie upon their farewell, but Emilie refuses, for reasons she explains in a flashback of another couple's story, her friend Judith and her husband, and Judith's eventual romantic involvement with her best friend Nicolas. There is one final twist towards the very end, which I won't give away here (you'll just have to see it for yourself). Remember, this is a French movie, and hence a lot of talking for talking's sake.

I enjoyed this movie, but was not blown away by it. The best for me was the lovely performance of Virginie Ledoyen, in the role of Judith. Interesting also is that Emmanuel Mouret, who plays the role of Nicolas, directed this movie. In all, pleasant, but certainly not essential viewing.

I didn't love this, but it killed part of a 9 hour flight and was interesting enough that I didn't switch to something else, so it's not the worst film out there. None of the characters are particularly compelling.

Shall We Kiss? ranks in the top tier of contemporary French comedies along with comic hits of the director and writer Francis Veber like The Dinner Game, The Closet and The Valet, which have won numerous awards. This film's principal protagonist, Virginie Ledoyen, is one of France's most talented actresses (she began her "career" at the age of two) and has become a delightful screen presence. (She also appeared recently opposite Gerard Depardieu in the French farce, Bon Voyage.) Shall We Kiss? is a most amusing story that will appeal to young and old alike. It's a memorable comic tale of the Human Condition.
