Fanny (Marina Foïs) is in her thirties, and single, and she's decided she's sick of being lonely. She's invited Paul (Julien Boisselier), a computer programmer she met at work, over for dinner, and she's determined to have her way with him. She dolls herself up and places a condom in a convenient location. Naturally, things don't go according to plan. Paul calls to say he'll be late, and Fanny suspects he's on a date with another woman. In a fit of pique, she decides to toss the meal she's made for them, and when Paul arrives, she tells him she wants to go out to eat. But Paul's just procured a rare CD and wants to listen to it, so she relents and invites him in. They start to talk, and after a bit of miscommunication, Fanny resumes her plot. But Paul gets a call from his sister, who is distraught because she thinks her boyfriend is cheating on her. He decides to go console her, but Fanny has other ideas. Eventually, Paul recognizes that he's being seduced, however clumsily, and decides to act, but by then Fanny has had another change of heart. J'me Sens Pas Belle marks the feature debut of writer/director Bernard Jeanjean. The film was shown by the Film Society of Lincoln Center as part of their 2005 Rendez-Vous With French Cinema. ~ Josh Ralske, Rovi
