Darker directions, off the beaten path.

The Girl from Monaco is so briskly plotted ( ... ) that it's easy to overlook the sharp, even feminist observations made about male friendship and sexuality.

When, far too late in the day for us to care, they enter Hitchcock territory, the plot shift gives you the cinematic equivalent of whiplash and leaves you holding your head, wondering how on earth it happened and really rather wishing it hadn't.

... an engaging and stylish film.

Fontaine can't seem to decide whether she's making a dry sex farce or a slow-burn thriller, and the movie never really commits to either.

If you think I'm being tasteless, you should see the movie.

An uncommonly shrewd and funny farce.

Luchini's trademark mannerisms, which in some films can be irritating, are here perfectly judged and appropriate. Zem confirms his growing stature as a boxoffice attraction, [and] Bourgoin does well to keep her character from veering into caricature.

Luchini, who could read the phone directory and make it sound exciting, has completely nailed the soft-skinned, flabby, middle-aged lawyer who hides his hang-ups behind a barrage of verbiage.

A generally entertaining piece of fluff that's kept afloat by a weathered cast including Fabrice Luchini and Roschdy Zem.

As a solid thriller, La fille de Monaco feels like it's missed the mark.

Despite Bourgoin's dazzling presence, it's the hollow-eyed Luchini who quietly takes over the film.

The film doesn't add up to much in the end, but if you like leggy, flirty blondes, dark, brooding tough-guy bodyguards and fussy middle-aged lawyers, it's entertaining.

The postman may always ring twice, but a bodyguard doesn't even have to bother to knock.

The French comedy-drama The Girl from Monaco demonstrates how an excess of liberté and fraternité can be hazardous to the health, especially where there is an absence of egalité.

Like its protagonist, you end up with plenty to think about, puzzle over, and forget.

It's not at all as disposable as it seems at first glance.

Luchini and Zern develop a nice rapport in their scenes together that helps to keep the whole enterprise afloat and Bourgoin is enough of a looker to explain why both would become so infatuated with her.
