Jacques, painter and great seducer, is about to receive the charming Claire for dinner. Broke, but astute, Jacques has concocted a sumptuous meal. And that's good, because Claire loves good things. Everything looks great when, suddenly, a door slams - and turns the evening into a gigantic fiasco. Jacques will have to change his plans, play with the unforeseen. However, that evening, it is the unforeseen that will play with him.
Also known as: Sweet Jacques (Canadian title) Highly enjoyable sex comedy. Sleeper of the 2002 Vancouver International Film Festival. Good insight into the sexual mores of several generations of modern Parisians. Director Thomas Bardinet and co-writer Gilles Marchand create diverse group of characters and toss them together, with lively and unpredictable results. Feisty lead performance in the role of Jacques by François Berléand (School of Flesh, 1998). Opening credits sequence in a pool worth price of admission. Great Paris locations. Who said the French couldn't make sex comedies that were both sexy and funny?
