Shall We Kiss?

DIRECTOR: Emmanuel Mouret - France

Woody Allen meets Eric Rohmer in writer-director-actor Emmanuel Mouret's delicately droll romantic comedy.  After a chance encounter on the streets of Nantes, Gabriel and Emilie sense romance in the air, though alas, they are both involved with other people. When Gabriel proposes "a kiss with no consequences," Emilie--knowing there is no such thing--pauses to tell a story.  Through flashbacks, we learn the story of her friends Nicolas and Judith and the brief, seemingly innocent kiss they once shared--which led to the transformation of their entire lives.  Far from a simple kiss-and-tell tale, Mouret's ingenious interweaving of characters and courtship explores the bittersweet complications of love and the comic certainty of unintended consequences.

Filmography: Venus and Fleur (04), Change of Address (06).

Sponsored by TV5MONDE, the international French language television network, now available on Verizon FiOS TV.
