BORDERLINES: Beautiful Lies
Director: Pierre Salvadori
Starring: Audrey Tautou, Nathalie Baye, Sami Bouajila
Not so much a romantic comedy but a funny, sharp comedy about love. Anonymous love letters, mistaken identities, and overheard confessions lead to scenes of acute embarrassment that are both agonizing and hilarious to watch.The effervescent Tautou plays Emilie, the prickly owner of a hairdressing salon who is trying her best to cheer her jilted mother so forwards her the anonymous love letter she's received. But Emilie's well-intentioned efforts lead her from one excruciating situation to the next. Frothy French fun.
