If you think about it, you'll realize how flimsy-and even lazy-it is; if not, you'll likely give in to its airy charms.

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

Filled with sentimentality, pretensions, unfulfilled ambitions and a host of dull characters faced with life threatening problems that verge on the ludicrous.

Una comedia simpática y pintoresca, si bien peca de algo de ingenuidad, cierta superficialidad dramática y una indefinición de tono que le quitan interés y credibilidad.

a frothy confection that, much like its characters, often seems at odds with its own ambitions.

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

There are French movies that are clearly made with a French audience in mind, and there are other French movies that have a non-French audience in mind. Daniele Thompson's "Avenue Montaigne" seems to be aimed at a third, highly-specialized audience; peopl

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.

Something like 'Love Actually,' in Gallic.

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.

You know where to find "Avenue Montaigne." It's in Paris, near the intersection of Sappy Circle and Derivative Drive.

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.

Outside of some lovely encounters between Jessica and her beloved grandmother, the film seems mostly obvious and two-dimensional. And with subtitles.

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.

Director Daničle Thompson tries vainly to make a larger point, but the thin effervescence of the film bubbles away any such attempts.

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