Consensus: Shall We Kiss? combines just enough romance and laughs to make for a charming French take on Woody Allen comedies.

Roger Moore

More quirky than wacky, this winning comedy only hits its romantic high when we return to that framing story, the storyteller who won't casually kiss because she knows, damn well, there's no such thing as a casual 'French' kiss.

The influence of Woody Allen is obvious, but Mouret -- though he overdoes the tics and hesitancies of his nervous lover -- manages to make this combination of humour, sex and pain all his own.
