Beautiful Lies review

Audrey Tautou re-teams with Priceless director Pierre Salvadori for this modern spin on romantic standard The Shop Around The Corner.

Audrey plays Émilie, the brusque owner of a seaside beauty salon who receives an anonymous love letter from handyman Jean (Sami Bouajila).

Émilie proceeds to forward the billet-doux to her depressed mother Maddy (Nathalie Baye), setting in motion a train of misunderstandings and complications.

Salvadori generates few laughs from this convoluted tale, whose romcom trappings sit uneasily with its lonely, troubled characters.
