Critic Reviews for The Valet
Everyone in The Valet is likable; the movie even manages to be somewhat subversive, as it posits the idea that supermodels are people, too. Not to mention smart, kind and down-to-earth people. Quelle surprise!
Just enjoy it now as the exceedingly pleasant farce that it is.
At 80 minutes long, it's that rare case of a short film that should have been longer. And that's its problem: It really should have been longer.
Briskly directed, The Valet hits the brakes for an abrupt ending, but this short ride delivers few apercus on fidelity, glamor or the nice boy next door.
Audience Reviews for The Valet
This is a quick, and airy film. The plot -a bumbling blockhead pays a valet to shack up with his mistress in order to fool his wife, while at the same time trying to convince the mistress he is getting divorced, This premise doesn't leave much to the imagination, but the dialogue is lively. The supporting characters, including a doctor who coerces medical care from his patients, adds a real spark to what would otherwise be a conventional story. Cute, and entertaining.
The cast is great, Paris is beautiful, the story is ammusing (if not trite at times). Gad Elmaleh is (once again) absolutely charming as Pignon, the down on his (romantic) luck valet and Kristen Scott Thomas is great as the wife of the philandering millionaire (Daniel Auteuil). Unfortunatley things just never seem to develope fully. I was almost expecting (when the screen went black) to see a "Insert Disc 2" message pop up, but instead the credits started rolling! We even scrolled through all of the credits, in the hopes that they would have one of those little "epilogue" clips that some films tag on to the end. But nothing.
The Valet is such a funny foreign film. Kristin Scott Thomas whom was great in The English Patient co-stars in this comedy. A valet is caught in a taploid magazine beside a famous model whom is having an affair with a very wealthy man that is also in the picture. In order to not get divorced the model and valet must con there way to prove they are a happy couple whom live together...it is too funny.
