We gave it a B

A wistful French comedy that aims to out-charm even Amélie, Avenue Montaigne follows a waitress (de France) who crosses paths with several renowned Parisians. Director Daniéle Thompson nimbly juggles several overlapping story lines, and if the results are predictable, the performances are winning, particularly Valérie Lemercier’s soap star and Brasseur’s art collector. EXTRAS Only a boilerplate making-of, in which costar Sydney Pollack (who, naturally, plays a movie director) can’t resist explaining how he interprets his big scene. B
