Product Description

Famous French actors and real life couple Yvan Attal and Charlotte Gainsbourg (Jane Eyre, The Cement Garden, The Little Thief) star in this chic, sexy romantic comedy about an actress and her jealoushusband. The film cleverly blurs the line between reality and fiction, and marks Yvan Attal's debutas a writer and director. Successful sportswriter Yvan and popular film star Charlotte enjoy a glamorous, sophisticated lifestyle in Paris. But when Charlotte relocates to London to star in a sexy movie opposite legendary ladies' man John (Oscar(r)-nominated Terence Stamp, Best Actor in a Supporting Role: Billy Budd, 1963), Yvan panics and travels back and forth from Paris to London to check on hiswife. Even he can't prevent Charlotte from shooting a very intimate scene with her new leading man.Is Charlotte about to have an affair, or is she just acting?

Amazon.com

A slight but appealing dramatic comedy, My Wife Is an Actress explores the marital downside of fame. It's about the hazards of being married to someone--in this case the fine French actress Charlotte Gainsbourg, playing a fictionalized version of herself, also named Charlotte--whose profession and celebrity pose a constant threat to matrimonial harmony. The movie dispels the fantasy of a movie-star spouse (i.e., would you really want to marry Julia Roberts?), exploring the reality with adequate humor but precious little insight. Gainsbourg's actual husband, Yvan Attal, is also her director and costar, playing Charlotte's sports-reporter husband (named Yvan), and turning jealous when she gets friendly with her current film's costar, played with world-weary charm by Terence Stamp. Surely this scenario was fascinating for French filmgoers, and as lightweight drama it's a pleasant enough diversion. Unfortunately, Attal discreetly avoids the deeper details of his life. Instead we get the shallow version, still authentic but not authentic enough. --Jeff Shannon
