      Critics Consensus

      Undeniably slight, this satiric thriller suffers from an uneven tone and a relative lack of thrills, but solid performances from the cast help keep it afloat. Read critic reviews

        A high-profile lawyer falls for a sprightly weather girl against the advice of his world-weary bodyguard. Essentially a dramedy about the perilous line between love and sexual obsession, this film is interesting when it's not trying to be funny and funny in all the right ways. Professional critics have complained about the thriller element to this film, but though it eventually winds its way to a thriller-esque conclusion, by classifying it as a dramedy, a drama with comic elements, I found things to like. After all, the idea of a film with all the trappings of a romantic comedy but which takes its themes seriously and probably surprised even the filmmakers is refreshing in the genre. Louise Bourgoin as the mercurial sex kitten who seduces the main character is beautiful, and her acting talents make her character's weather-like changes believable. Fabrice Luchini is also quite good; I think my favorite moment is his nearly catatonic dive into the pool. Overall, I found the mixed elements of <i>The Girl from Monaco</i> satisfying and entertaining.

        In "The Girl from Monaco," Bertrand(Fabrice Luchini) is a top criminal lawyer in Monaco to defend Edith(Stephane Audran) on charges of killing her lover. He was hired by her son Louis(Gilles Cohen) in order to stop his mother from defending herself in court, having already dismissed several lawyers. Against the possibility of retaliation by the victim's family, he has also gone to the trouble of hiring Christophe(Roschdy Zem), a bodyguard, to protect Bertrand which he thinks is foolish. That is until Christophe helps in getting rid of Helene(Jeanne Balibar), a particularly troublesome lover. After that, the two men bond but Christophe can do nothing to protect Bertrand from the charms of Audrey(Louise Bourgoin), the local weather girl. "The Girl from Monaco" is a sexy legal drama about control. Both Bertrand and Christophe need it to be successful in their professions. Bertrand needs control over every word in the courtroom and when he seduces women. Christophe needs it over the environment to protect his clients and emotions. What they also have in common is a lack of serious involvement with women(nothing wrong with this, as long as nobody gets hurt) which is why they are so concerned about their lack of control over Audrey who is sex personified and a force of nature, if you will. She is not crazy, nor is Helene, just passionate.

        Le Fille de Monaco was a mix of romantic comedy together with drama. Unfortunately, the end result was bad and there was no way to connect with the characters. Fabrice Luchini played Bertrand. an elite lawyer coming to Monaco to work a high profile case. He was assigned a bodyguard, Christophe, with whom he developed a great friendship. Then appeared Audrey, a weather forecast girl, who was way younger than Bertrand and she turned his life upside down. Luchini and Zem had good chemistry on screen and the bound they formed was interesting but never fully realized.Then the movie suddenly made an unexpected twist, which was not bad but due to lack of character development, it was difficult to believe the turns of events experienced here.
