Good Movie That Entertains? Priceless...

Today was another lazy Sunday afternoon, I decide to watch a Frecnh movie, Priceless or also known as Hors De Prix, to kill some time. The movie has a little taste of Pretty Woman, and quite entertaining, starring Gad Elmaleh, the funniest person in France and Audrey Tautou, pretty lady from the Davinci Code.

Pricless directed by Pierre Salvadori, tells the story about the beautiful, scheming adventuress Irene (Audrey Tautou) meets Jean (Gad Elmaleh), a shy waiter working in a grand hotel, and mistakes him for a young millionaire. She skips out from her sixty-something sugar daddy Jacques (Vernon Dobtcheff) to spend the night with Jean. However, when she discovers his lowly status, Irene beats a quick retreat. But love-struck Jean has no intention of letting her
escape, and pursues her to the French Riviera. Quickly running out of money, he finds himself a loaded widow (Marie-Christine Adam) and takes up residence in a magnificent luxury hotel. Will the seducer become the seduced?

I love the scene where Jean offered Irene for 10 seconds of her time with 1 euro. With the 10 seconds he bought, he just stared at Irene's face that mesmerized him. Awesome and so romantic... My verdict on this movie? It's a nice and entertaining date movie on lazy afternoon. Maybe asked a lady friend to watch together, at least she will enjoy it a lot. Overall, this is a great film about relationships, discovery, interaction between realistic people, human values that are often taken for granted and forgotten these days. Just loveeee and romannceee!!

p/s: Try to look for The Valet (La Doublure) starring Gad Elmalet, should be another good France movie.. Gosh, must France week for me!!! Adioss..
