Priceless is a French movie from 2006 that was inspired by Breakfast at Tiffany’s. It is starring Audrey Tautou and Gal Elmaleh and deals with the life of Irène, a gold-digger who convinces wealthy men to fund her lifestyle in exchange for companionship. But when Irène mistakes Jean, a poor waiter, for a millionaire things get somewhat tricky for both of them. Since Jean cannot support the woman he loves the way he wants to, he himself resorts to becoming a gold-digger as well. Irène and Jean both misleading their victims, seem to be the perfect team as long as they don’t get discovered.
It is a really funny and likable story, even though you might not agree with the life Irène leads. The moral of the story is of course that true love can prevail all, but even though I am a pure romantic, I don’t believe that the ending (that I am not going to give away) is very realistic. If you enjoy simple romantic-comedies you will definitely like this movie. It had everything one needs for a nice evening in front of the TV.
Did you like the movie as well? Did you think it was too superficial or was it just a sweet story?
