Madame (2017)

Elevator Pitch.

Bob and Anne are a rich American couple at least temporarily living in a luxury residence in Paris. Anne is Bob’s second wife, but their marriage seems to have hit a rocky patch and both are looking round for excitement. In addition Bob is selling a valuable painting to overcome a temporary financial problem, and this requires Anne to arrange a luxury dinner at which an art dealer will be present. When numbers don’t add up she recruits her maid, who is to pretend to be Spanish aristocrat as a dinner guest. When she catches the eye of the art dealer what will happen?


The couple bicker, the dinner takes place, the art dealer romances the maid who continues to pretend to be something she isn’t. There is a lot of not very smart talk. Anne gets together with someone else and later is seen descending naked into a swimming pool, only to be ignored by her possible lover. So there is drinking, nudity and a bit of not very convincing sex, but no drug taking or smoking (Idon’t think).

A View This was a film with a main plot and a number of subplots, none of which seem to have had a resolution. This could have been intentional, but if so how could this turkey have possibly been called a comedy. The low point might have been Toni Collette rolling her eyes apparently in sexual ecstasy, while neither her clothing or that of her lover appeared to have been disturbed. We paid to see this but don’t follow our example.
