Sportswriter Yvan (Yvann Attal) is happily married to actress Charlotte (Charlotte Gainsbourg) until he runs into Georges (Lionel Abelanski) a friend of his pregnant sister’s in a bar, where he starts asking questions like 'Don’t you worry when your wife is kissing another man?" and 'What do you think when you see your wife naked in bed with another actor?" He begins to ferment with jealous notions as Charlotte goes to London to make a film in which she plays a young woman seduced by John (Terence Stamp) playing the older man. In the meantime, Yvann’s sister Nathalie (Noémie Lvovsky) and her husband Vincent (Laurent Bateau) are at loggerheads over the issue of whether or not to circumcise their son.

An amiable film, but not a very hard-hitting or memorable one.

Yvan (Yvan Attal), a television sports journalist, counts himself very fortunate to have married a famous movie star, Charlotte (Charlotte Gainsbourg). But it irritates him when strangers ogle his wife, or when she uses her name to book a table at a restaurant he's been told is full, or when a complete stranger tells him how aroused he was by his wife's presence on screen. And Yvan's insecurities increase when Charlotte goes off to London to appear in a movie in which she is going to play a nude scene with a British actor (Terence Stamp).

Yvan Attal and Charlotte Gainsbourg are married in real life, so we have to assume there's a degree of autobiography in this, the first feature Attal has written and directed. Opening information advises the viewer that 10,000 actresses live in Paris, and that they're all wacko, a sweeping conclusion with which many actresses would surely disagree.

This is an amiable film, but not a very hard-hitting or memorable one. The jokes are fairly predictable and there are really few insights into what it's really like to be married to a celebrity. The scenes in London come over well thanks to the charmingly mellow contribution of Terence Stamp, but marginal characters like Yvan's pregnant sister and her milksop husband are more irritating than funny.
