Impossibly charming and impossibly French (though readymade for a Hollywood remake), Shall We Kiss? is a comic romance full of rueful musings about fidelity and true love.
Written, directed by and starring Emmanuel Mouret - whose onscreen persona is shaggy and shambling - the film follows a man and woman who are closest of friends, but whose friendship turns to sexual desire and then knock-down-the-house obsession.
So what's the problem? Well, she, Judith (the elegant Virginie Ledoyen), is already married to the nice, funny, caring Claudio (Stefano Accorsi). She doesn't have the heart to hurt her spouse, even as her relationship with Nicolas (Mouret) has changed from intimately platonic to just plain intimate.
