Priceless

 (12A)

Genuine charm is rare in contemporary movies, which makes this light but entertaining French-language romantic comedy even more engaging, largely thanks to the charismatic appeal of Audrey Tautou. 

She is utterly delightful as the scheming adventuress Irene who, dropped by her elderly rich lover, mistakes shy barman/waiter Jean (Gad Elmaleh) for another convenient millionaire to woo. 

Understandably smitten, Jean goes along with the deception, paying for his expensive courtship by becoming a gigolo.

Writer-director Pierre Salvadori’s film is smooth and satisfying and recalls, not to its disadvantage, classic Hollywood genre pictures like Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
