We gave it a B+

Yvan Attal directs his real-life wife, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and costars with her, too, in a clever peekaboo comedy about ”Yvan” and ”Charlotte,” a less-than-famous husband struggling with his wife’s movie-star celebrity. With every detail in this feisty and self-aware first feature, the filmmaker dangles the possibility that fiction is fact and that Yvan and Charlotte are real — or at least as real as the movies.
