Plot
Nine tonally varying French shorts deal with theme of infidelity, approaching it with an enjoyable blend of wit and tenderness, style and vulgarity. 'The Question' sees Jean Dujardin and his real-life spouse Alexandra Lamy dealing with marital fidelity, while while 'Unfaithful Anonymous' looks at a support group for serial adulterers.


Review
The Players
Anyone curious to see what the Artist’s Oscar-winning actor and director did next will delight in this collection of nine French shorts, ranging from two minutes to 20, each of which sets out to skewer aspects of infidelity. As with many portmanteau films, this rom-compilation varies in tone and quality, ranging from the sublime (Hazanavicius’ La Bonne Conscience) to the ridiculous (Thibault, one of Courtès’ four contributions). Jean Dujardin and Gilles Lellouche, who write, direct and star in the Las Vegas section, are highly watchable comic actors, and what emerges is a film of wit and style, often very funny — and surprisingly sad.


Verdict
Often funny, outrageously vulgar in places and very, very French.
