  • Summary: France, a single mother from the blighted industrial north, and Steve, a hotshot trader with a keen eye for the killer deal, are thrown together when he’s looking for a cleaner and she’s looking for a job. When Alban, Steve’s 3-year-old son, arrives on the doorstep to stay with his dad, Steve might need more than a cleaner. And France might need some payback from the man who almost single-handedly shut down the factory where she worked. (Sundance Selects) Expand

    Klapisch is a master of the half-biting, half-soothing farce, and he usually keeps the divergent tones in harmony.

    Paints an alluring picture of a pan-European cosmopolitan culture whose characters hopscotch from one country to another with hardly a second thought in a lighthearted floating party.

    A Euro gloss on "Pretty Woman" suddenly turns into "Occupy Gaul."

    A feeble stab at topicality from that master of overripe Gallic melodrama, Cédric Klapisch.

    Cédric Klapisch settles for a mixture of bland obviousness and crudely manufactured drama.
