Here's one of the very few dramas I enjoyed watching.Watch it but don't get carried away by any part of it.
The basic plot is: Jean (Gad Elmaleh), a shy young bartender, is mistaken for a millionaire by a beautiful, scheming opportunist, Irene (Audrey Tautou). When Irene discovers his true identity, she abandons him-- only to find that a lovelorn Jean has no intention of letting go. Jean's comical attempts to gain her affections gradually evolve into setting himself up as a gigolo at a luxury hotel until Irene finally starts to warm to her persistent, persuasive suitor. Set in a wildly atmospheric backdrop of the south of France, Priceless might be seen as a modern twist on Breakfast at Tiffanys, but is so much more when one sees the chemistry of the key actors.
