Equally seduced by one another, but both otherwise committed, they know they will probably never see each other again. He would like to kiss her. She as well, but a story prevents her from doing so: that of a married woman and of her best friend who were surprised by the effects of a kiss. Of a kiss that should have born no consequences.

  1. Shall We Kiss? gives us storytelling as art. Emmanuel Mouret's romantic drama, in French with English subtitles, is expert, intricate, ineffably droll, ultimately provocative and entirely enchanting.
  2. Impossibly charming and impossibly French.
  3. The players in this mouth-watering Gallic soufflé are so attractive, well mannered and comfortably grounded in the bourgeois world that you needn’t fear for their well-being, minor heartaches notwithstanding.
  4. An engaging romantic comedy that's deeper, smarter and more pessimistic than it appears at first glance, a film with shrewd insight into the mysteries of human attraction.
  5. 75
    A sensational date movie.
  6. 67
    The very definition of "breezy." It's a featherweight romantic comedy.
  7. Painfully dunderheaded about the proclivities of the human heart.

But I enjoyed the storytelling; it's one of those plots that would've been utterly inane with minimally talented alums of "Friends" or "Grey's Anatomy" but somehow works with the light, chatty touch of the French cast. Some of the developments are not witty or humorous, but just plain silly. Perhaps the score is a hint: Much of it is from "The Nutcracker," and you just have to enjoy the dancing. Expand

The script is infantile, and the events and behavior of the characters are excruciatingly unoriginal. Apparently, when famous critics watch a movie in French their critical thinking skills disengage. This movie is a disgrace to French cinema. I could go on... Expand
