Life and Art come together in Avenue Montaigne, a charming and accessible French export. Not too fluffy, not too deep %u2014 just right.

Daniele and Christopher Thomson's marvellously crafted script brings all the characters to life as they struggle to shake the worlds in which they live

While AVENUE MONTAIGNE is something of a trifle (which makes it easy to understand why it did not garner an Oscar nomination when there were far more deserving features), it still is a pleasant and enjoyable movie.

This is one of the wonders of Paris, I imagine, or at least of being rich in Paris: Even your misery plays like a fairy tale. In Avenue Montaigne, miserable souls are as common as raindrops, and each one is a portrait of privileged existentialism.

A film that seeks to amble it way towards resolution and which offers a few insights and smiles along the way.

A warm-hearted French confection, the sort of breezy, lightly sophisticated boulevard comedy that was once plentiful in Gallic cinema, and makes a happy comeback here.

Even if this fine French meal isn't as rich or feels a little less than it might have been, it's still delightful to sit through, course after winning course.

While this sort of thing can easily devolve into bourgeois comfort food, Thompson, a veteran of the genre, knows how to serve it up just about right.

The movie is as airy as a spun-sugar dessert, but Thompson's observations on the artistic life are both affectionate and knowing: Beauty and wealth, though inevitably compelling, are appreciated as means to humane ends, not goals in themselves.

Though the picture's like a souffle that occasionally goes soggy, for the most part it's a tasty treat.

Watching the charming Avenue Montaigne makes you realize not only how much we miss when mainstream French films are not on the movie menu, but how much we miss when American studios define 'romantic comedy' so strictly.

Avenue Montaigne [hits the mark] in a way that's unpretentious, sublime, sweet, meaningful and funny.

Avenue Montaigne may not be the lightest, brightest film ever made, but compared to the glum and talky movies most people associate with French cinema, it's downright chipper.

The ensemble cast is wonderful, especially Lemercier as the bipolar actress trying to impress Pollack's director but failing spectacularly.

It's one of those 'what's-not-to-like' movies, a fantasy about life and Paris that passes painlessly, a trifle elevated by its Parisian settings and our desire to lose ourselves in them.
