Movie Info

Emmanuel Mouret's romantic comedy Shall We Kiss? begins with two strangers who end up attracted to each other, even though they both are involved in relationships with others. The woman refuses to kiss the man goodnight after a dinner together, explaining that a single kiss can alter a life. This set-up acts as a framing device for the main story, a tale she shares with him about friends who complicate their lives by becoming sexually involved. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

    Convuluted hijinks as friends decide to take things just a little step furthur to temporarily ease the loneliness of one ... nobody'll get hurt, right? We'll still be friends, right? Wrong. You could pass on this light truffle.

    I've seen several movies where it's this same setting. Two characters who are attracted to each other but are both with another person so they fuck each other behind their partners' backs. I've also seen movies where the people being cheated on are presented as good people, yet you're supposed to root for the people who are fucking around...that's shitty writing quite frankly. How am I supposed to root for the two characters, however in love they may be, when 'good' people are being fucked over? Thankfully that's not the case with this movie, as the characters, right from the very beginning, are presented as selfish dicks who really don't care about hurting anyone as long as they get what they want. And that's what carries the movie. If they were presented in any other way, the movie wouldn't have worked. And I love how, at the beginning, when they start their affair they're so serious about rationalizing what they're doing. As if they were discussing, seriously and sternly, the 19th century existentialist movement. That's where most of the comedy comes from. And that's where the movie really shines, unfortunately once they start taking their affair seriously, that aspect of the movie is gone and the movie just isn't as funny. I still think it's a good movie with some entertaining aspects and the way they build up to the final kiss was good and effective, in spite of fucking over poor Claudio yet again. Anyway good movie, with a decent enough story and enough laughs to carry it even if it peaks way too early.

    The narrators storyline ruins what the rest of the movie seems geared to accomplish. What few merits this film has unfortunately fall apart by the end. If you feel for the characters at all, you will not by then. One of those movies that the critics seemed to like, and I just don't see why....

    Going in, this viewer wasn't sure about the format. Poorly done, using a present situation to tell another story can seem flat and highly contrived. But, in this case it works. A woman accepts a ride from a stranger and when, at the end of a pleasant evening he tries to kiss her, she demurs and proceeds to tell him the story of a friend of hers. The way the two stories are woven, fits together and gives a plausible explanation for the woman's hesitancy. As another reviewer has said this is incredibly erotic for the amount of skin that is shown on screen. The director has chosen to leave the juiciest parts up to the viewer's imagination, and that only serves to heighten the experience. This is a charming tale, told with wit and subtle visual gags. The actors are quite good, and the viewer finds himself quietly becoming invested in watching these two relationships play out. SPOILER! When the kiss does finally come, it is marvelous!
