As part of Paris In July I decided to take the opportunity to watch one of my favourite French films with my favourite French Actress, Audrey Tautou - Priceless.
I just adore this movie! I know it is not one of the "classics" of French cinema but it makes me laugh and smile every time I watch it.
Audrey Tautou plays the role of Iréne, a young, attractive, sassy gold digger on the hunt for a permanent rich older man to play the part of provider so that she can continue to live in the manner to which she has become accustomed. At an exclusive hotel on the French Riviera Iréne meets Jean - a hotel employee who she mistakes for rich prey. The confusion leads to the start of a very funny relationship as Jean is forced to take on an unfamiliar, and not entirely comfortable role, in order to woo Iréne.
The film is gorgeous to watch - beautiful sets, locations, clothes and people and the two lead roles have a wonderful chemistry together. Pure French fun!
