She mistakes barman Jean for a well-healed guest and he encourages the deceit by taking her up to the Royal Suite for the night. A year later the same thing happens but this time her lover finds out and disowns her. Now knowing Jean is indeed a barman of little means doesn’t stop her from continuing to live in style until his money is gone. He soon finds himself in Irene’s business with older and worldly-wise Madeleine, and though Irene also takes up with a new paramour the two of them keep in increasingly close touch.
Plot: A beautiful young gold-digger mistakes a lowly hotel clerk as a rich and therefore worthwhile catch.

subtle and developed
With so much rubbish hitting screens across the world it’s a breath of fresh air each time a film comes along that treats its audience with respect and acknowledges a level of intelligence and ability to pick up detail without banging us over the head with it. Priceless takes a simple idea that in other hands would have stayed at the simple level and develops layers and folds, shades of grey, as well as some straight up laughs.
Audrey Tautou does wonders with her character, making her lovable one minute and despicable the next but not so much that we hate her. I was amazed at the natural flow with which she delivered her performance. A slight facial expression speaking pages. If I wasn’t a fan before, I am now.
Gad Elmaleh delivers a similar performance as he did in the valet, which works perfectly for this movie, luckily. He is really good at what he does, and for those that say he is unbelievable in the lead romantic role, I think he pulled out the charm quite convincingly at the right moments, which is exactly what the feel of the film required. These are not cartoon characters that we know are either good or bad, they’re complex, just like real humans who some times we hate, and some times we love. Yay for quality cinema!!
Waiting for the penny to drop
All the way through this film I was waiting for the characters to figure out what was going on.
In the first bar scene, I expected Irene to figure out that Jean was actually the bartender – but she didn’t. From then on I was disappointed numerous times by the stupidity of people when they were unable to see what was in front of their own faces.
Plus there was the plain impossibility that their “partners” failed to notice that they were missing for long periods of time. I also didn’t believe for a second that Irene would find Jean in the slightest attractive or interesting once she discovered his financial plight.
Another thing they failed to realise is that sleeping with people for money is called prostitution and maybe they should rethink their chosen profession.
I really only rented this DVD to see Audrey Tautou in skimpy dresses – as promised by a DVD review magazine – but I couldn’t give the film more than 5 out of 10 despite the lovely Audrey’s flesh-fest as it was just so inane and frustrating.
