Writer/Director Emmanuel Mouret also is the lead in his amusing-at-best comedy Shall We Kiss? (2007), is a meet-cute tale about people talking often and not doing much else, but especially at its center is Emilie (Julie Gayet) must refuse a simple kiss. It almost wears out its welcome at 96 minutes, but just about quits while it is ahead. Some will find this amusing and Woody Allen comparisons are fair, but it is trying to be different. Virginie Ledoyen (8 Women), Michael Cohen and Frederique Bel (Russian Dolls) also star.

 

 

The anamorphically enhanced 1.85 X 1 image here not perfect, but not bad with some good moments of detail and decent color throughout. This is nicely shot for a simple comedy, but none of the shots stayed with me either. The Dolby Digital French 2.0 Stereo mix is just fine, but has weak surrounds is any were intended. Extras include stills, teasers and a Theatrical Trailer.
