There isn't a moment in Hôtel Normandy that isn't painfully contrived, yet, worse still, its mix-ups boast all the inspiration and excitement of a weekend getaway at the local mall.

Another well-upholstered but cheap exercise in luxe pandering that fails as romantic farce.

Jean-Paul Bathany and Stéphane Ben Lahcene's screenplay briskly sets up its game of musical chairs, but then lets its characters wander about the seaside town at a reliably mild velocity.

Despite its nods to convention, this fairy tale has little artifice: like Alice, it's a Gallic product that's stylish, not slick.
