    The French originals are always much breezier, the characters more genuine and the actors subtler even if the situations are just as silly.

    It is aided both by fine performances by Auteuil, Aumont and Depardieu and by wonderful pacing.

    This is economy of style that Americans get only in Woody Allen movies -- and even that's not a guarantee.

    Auteuil is as charming as ever, with a surprising aptitude for physical humor that keeps the tone cheerfully light and the laughs plentiful.
