Quirky French films like this can either work really well or be absolutely intolerable. Thankfully, this proves to be a very enjoyable comedy about jealousy.

My Wife Is an Actress is an utterly charming French comedy that feels so American in sensibility and style it's virtually its own Hollywood remake.

My Wife's plotting is nothing special; it's the delivery that matters here.

It's Othello Lite -- minus that bit at the end about murder-suicide, but with every ounce of Shakespeare's insane emotion.

My Wife Is an Actress works as well as it does because [the leads] are such a companionable couple.

U.S. audiences may find [Attal and Gainsbourg's] unfamiliar personas give the film an intimate and quaint reality that is a little closer to human nature than what Hollywood typically concocts.

Yvan may be a self-deprecating paranoiac in the Woody Allen tradition, but Mr. Attal's script does a fine job of making his character's concerns farcically real.

A romantic comedy for anyone in love with the movies, and anyone, for that matter, who's in love.

Everything that has to do with Yvan and Charlotte, and everything that has to do with Yvan's rambunctious, Jewish sister and her non-Jew husband, feels funny and true.
| Original Score: 3/4

My Wife offers the best and the worst of both Allen's ego-and- neuroses-based humor and Truffaut's romanticism about love and movies.
