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.
Emily S. Mendel

... an engaging and stylish film.

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.

Despite Bourgoin's dazzling presence, it's the hollow-eyed Luchini who quietly takes over the film.
| Original Score: 3/4

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.

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.

It was a perfect blend of satire and tension.

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 is a romantic comedy/drama, but the most appealing relationship has nothing to do with the girl of the title.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

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

In these roles, Fabrice Luchini and Roschdy Zem make an accomplished acting team.

The chemistry between each pairing of the three principals is surprisingly potent and that's what makes this film work.
