Combien tu m’aimes?
Bertrand Blier :: France :: 2005 :: 1h35
A uncomfortably solitary man wins the lottery and walks straight into his local Pigale prostitution bar and walks out with the emblem of desire, renting happy living. Monica Bellucci plays this incarnation of beauty in this lonely hearts hotel which is Paris, where all the characters dream of a life they do not have. The originality of the plot is further strengthened by the power of the dialogues which deal with the curiosity, selfishness and greed which comes with the naivety of these poor victims of social life. The theatrical caricatures are kissed to life in the burlesque drama they find themselves rolling into. For all those who want more theatre in their lives, a reminder that for happiness’ sake it is best kept on stage..
