With Jim Sabatini
Starring: Cecile de France and Sydney Pollack
This breezy French comedy is about a country girl, Jessica, who relocates to Paris.
In Avenue Montaigne, Cecile de France is rather engaging as the gamine gal who ends up waitressing in a bistro where artsy patrons convocate.
The story co-written by director Daniele Thompson is familiar and the conclusion is a bit mawkish and preordained.
Intermeshed into Jessica's milieu is a soap opera performer rehearsing a play, an afflicted, distinguished man trying to sell his art, and an unhappy concert pianist.
An unimpressive Sydney Pollack, better in Sketches of Frank Gehry, is an American film director who comes into contact with Jessica.
But, those in love with the City of Lights will have no trouble capriciously watching this attractive actress clad in black tights with a mini thigh-high and short, reddishly coiffed hair.
