I’m a big fan of Audrey Tautou (“Amelie”). Big enough to forgive her for starring in “The Da Vinci Code.” After all, it wasn’t her that made the movie so terrible…it was Tom Hanks hair. That, or a bad script. Whatever. I still really like her work and I’m now looking forward to her new film “Priceless.”
The movie claims to be a re-imagining of the cinema classic, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” Here’s the synopsis:
Jean (Gad Elmaleh), a shy young bartender, is mistaken for a millionaire by a beautiful, scheming opportunist named Irene (Audrey Tautou). When Irene discovers his true identity, she abandons him, only to find that a love-struck Jean has no intention of letting her get away. Jean’s comical attempts to gain her affections gradually evolve into setting himself up as a gigolo at a luxury hotel, until Irene finally starts to warm to her persistent, persuasive suitor. Against the wildly atmospheric backdrop of the south of France, Pierre Salvadori (APRES VOUS) directs this sexy and thoroughly charming romantic comedy, which is a fresh re-imagining of the cinema classic, BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S.
