PG-13
Priceless is a 2008 romantic comedy about a woman, Irene (Audrey Tautou), who moves from one rich man to another, enjoying their expensive gifts and the advantages of wealth. One day she wanders into a hotel bar and meets Jean (Gad Elmaleh), a man that she thinks is her type: wealthy and good looking. After they sleep together, though, she discovers he is not rich at all but a lowly employee of the hotel. She moves on but Jean has fallen in love with her. After being fired from the hotel, Jean follows Irene to Nice where she rejects his advances but does agree to be his friend. She teaches him the ways to seduce older women. Soon they are comparing the expensive gifts they receive from their rich benefactors. Originally a workaholic, Jean turns into a lazy gigolo under Irene's tutelage. Will Jean reform his ways and win Irene's heart? This French film was directed by Pierre Salvadori.
