So what else is there to remotely recommend this film? As the French say, "rien".

It was a perfect blend of satire and tension.
July 6, 2009
The film dances around suspense and satire, but achieves little of both.
July 3, 2009
Fontaine puts a string of similarly striking images in succession, but they don't really coalesce into a movie.

The Girl From Monaco doesn't seem to know whether it wants to be a sprightly sex comedy or an enigmatic little thriller. Unfortunately, it's neither very funny nor very thrilling.

This is a modest but expertly performed piece. And this summer, surrounded by lesser, louder, bigger and dumber diversions, it's especially welcome.

The Girl From Monaco may be momentarily entertaining, but don't expect anything profound from the lightweight saga as it wends its way to its contrived, TV-movie conclusion.

It's often sparkling, always stylish -- but ultimately no more significant than another day at an overpriced resort.

The Girl From Monaco is a romantic comedy/drama, but the most appealing relationship has nothing to do with the girl of the title.

Somehow Ms. Fontaine's attempt to mix styles and genres does not quite work, and instead of drawing tighter, The Girl from Monaco snaps and slackens, its apparent ingenuity revealed as a dubious contrivance.

The Girl from Monaco is not more than an entertainment, but an assured and well-oiled one.

At best diverting, at worst an almost self-parodic compendium of French film cliches.

Some movies create an inviting world for the viewer. This is one of them.

...isn't much of a movie but offers scrumptious views. Watching this movie makes you feel rich and sun-kissed and slightly decadent.

July 2, 2009
The film, having paraded itself fairly clumsily as a romantic comedy with psychological twists, turns absurdly serious on the treacherous roads that hug Monaco's cliffs.
July 2, 2009
For all the elasticity of the form, Anne Fontaine's Girl is still a cloying bit of business, rarely very funny and never smart enough to make a solid point, at least about anything we don't already know.
July 2, 2009
The film's love triangle and subsequent tonal 180 is a head-scratcher that renders it neither a comedy nor drama. What it feels like instead is a trifle -- and not one compelling enough to recommend.
July 2, 2009
Obsessed with the image of its tall and tan leading lady, The Girl from Monaco ends up a weak cocktail with a big red cherry floating between its ice cubes.
| Original Score: 2.5/5

A confection that has gone sour before you've finished consuming it.
