Priceless is as shallow as its characters.

Forget reality shows exalting American gluttony and savor the more refined amenities on the coasts of southern France in the cynical Gallic comedy Priceless.

This broadly amoral take on Breakfast at Tiffany's suffers from a serious case of who-should-we-care-for: He's a sap, she's a soulless vamp, their patrons are either cruel, self-deluding or both.
| Original Score: 2/4

They're awful cute together, even if they're awful people.

Worth seeing only for the mysterious adhesion process of Tautou's dresses and for Gilles Henry's glossy cinematography, which treats the luxurious Monte Carlo and Nice locations the way a tongue treats a lollipop.

Priceless, Pierre Salvadori's re-imagining (read: vulgarization) of Breakfast at Tiffany's, wears its contempt on its sleeve.

Under director-writer Pierre Salvadori, Priceless provides lightweight, predictable entertainment that will make you yearn for the Tautou of yesteryear.

Most of the problem is the absence of any perceptible chemistry between superstar Tautou and rising star Elmaleh.

Pierre Salvadori's Priceless has been heralded as a French box office hit, which suggests that the French have become as corrupt and materialistic as some commentators insist that we are.

As we watch Irene and Jean prostitute themselves with their weathered, moneyed marks, the vibe isn't playful or mischievous but tedious and vulgar. The accommodations might be four-star, but the movie is strictly Motel 6.

Looks like a million dollars, but in reality is just chump change.

[A] gruesomely unfunny and tacky comedy-farce.

The thing about a certain grade of contemporary French comedy, of which Priceless is a fine example, is the quality of the playing style. Nobody forces the situations, even the broadest ones.

Love conquers lucre in the cosmopolitan fairytale Priceless, a Kir Royale of a romantic comedy pairing Audrey Tautou and Gad Elmaleh on the French Riviera.

The outcome is as predictable as a high summer electric bill, but chemistry and charm go a long way.

Pierre Salvadori's deceptively sunny romantic comedy insinuates its point of view steadily, amidst great glamour and breeziness, only to reveal itself as a meditation on, dare we say it, capitalism.
Edward Douglas

A bit silly and predictable at times, but if you've been a long time fan of Tautou, you'll definitely want to see this.
