Fauteuils d'orchestre

Orchestra Seats or Avenue Montaigne

(France, 2005, 103 minutes)

A young provincial girl comes to Paris and finds work as a waitress at a café in a fashionable district, finding herself involved in the lives of a concert pianist, an actress and a self-made-man who are regular patrons. Musty, old-fashioned ensemble comedy-drama of the type Neil Simon used to know how to do; despite a game cast and some choice dialogue, it’s harmless, inoffensive and not very exciting entertainment.
