A Quick Tip by rbuchanan

  • Dec 14, 2011
  • by
Battered by disastrous prior relationships and scarcely content with the transient joys of one night stands, an aging beautician (Nathalie Baye) longs for a commitment that terrifies her while pursued by a former lover (Jacques Bonnaffé) and an affianced stranger (Samuel Le Bihan) who's impulsively taken with her. Meanwhile, one of her younger colleagues (Audrey Tautou, in an early prominent role) is romanced by a charismatic senior client. Every shot of Tonie Marshall's passionate, involving drama commands attention. Not at all a story of extraordinary depth, this narrative's preoccupation with shifting perceptions of fidelity and affection is nonetheless elevated by its fundamental sincerity of character development and the credibility of a first-rate cast.

French cinema is replete with great love stories, but few are so fit for Christmas viewing as this one.
