Shall We Kiss?

Written & Directed by: Emmanuel Mouret
Full credits from IMDb

Grade: 4/5

Shall We Kiss?, a deceptively airy romance, is a love story in love with stories, a work of art in love with art. Packed with rich orchestral music and classical paintings, it unfolds by folding in on itself: two strangers (Julie Gayet and MichaĆ«l Cohen), both in committed relationships, meet in Nantes and share an enchanted evening, but she won’t kiss him goodnight and goodbye — what he calls “a kiss of no consequence”. Instead, she tells him a story about two friends of hers (Virginie Ledoyen and writer-director Mouret) who kissed and lived to regret it, in order to prove that all kisses have consequences.
