Charming, but too contrived for a great turn on

The quiet joys of Shall We Kiss? are to be found not only in the observational writing and the pitch-perfect performances but in the way the mood shifts from tantalising foreplay to more serious matters.

More quirky than wacky, this winning comedy only hits its romantic high when we return to that framing story, the storyteller who won't casually kiss because she knows, damn well, there's no such thing as a casual 'French' kiss.

At the Movies (Australia)

The influence of Woody Allen is obvious, but Mouret -- though he overdoes the tics and hesitancies of his nervous lover -- manages to make this combination of humour, sex and pain all his own.

Orlando Weekly

It's the kind of total submission to a filmmaker that's usually reserved for edge-of-your-seat thrillers and, in a way, that's what Mouret has made: an expertly suspenseful romance.

Mouret is the cinematic offspring of Woody Allen and Eric Rohmer. From the former he takes the actor-director presenting himself as neurotic but satisfying lover; from the latter he absorbs the pleasure of extended talk. Mouret's talk is enjoyable, but i

The film goes badly awry, I think. There is something coy and miscalculated about it all. Mouret is quite talented as an actor, but maybe it's time he found another writer.

This is not your average romantic comedy. Shall We Kiss? simply delights.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

It's a breezy, entertaining little film that ends up being more sophisticated and thoughtful about love than it first appears. Sometimes a kiss is just a kiss, and sometimes it's a lot more.

Sydney Morning Herald

[The] polite inquiry [of the title] pretty well sums up the tone of this featherweight ensemble comedy about French people falling in and out of love.

Simon Weaving
Screenwize

This is a delicate and naïve piece of French fluff, part love story, part morality tale, part bedroom farce, and all very much in the style of writer-director-actor Emmanuel Mouret, a kind of comatose Woody Allen character.

The addiction of French cinema to stories of love, lust, betrayal and romance continues unabated in the hands of Emmanuel Mouret, playing unassuming characters on screen in his own films, like this one

You cannot talk yourself into passion, nor can you talk yourself out of it. The naive characters in Emmanuel Mouret's chatty romance try anyway.

Refreshingly, Mouret also shows that marital infidelity is not without serious repercussions.

There's a lot to like about Shall We Kiss? once it really gets going, which is about one-third of the way into the picture.

Austin Chronicle

Shall We Kiss? is not without charms, but the crux of the characters' quandary is about as monochromatic as the clothes they wear.

This quintessentially French bonbon is both sweet and dry, with just enough complexity to confound the fast-food appetite.

Feels like not only a small masterpiece, but like an object lesson for everything that's wrong with the American romantic comedy.
