Review by Steve Rhodes
3 stars out of 4

How would you feel if your wife had to work naked? Would it bother you? It does Yvan (Yvan Attal), whose wife sleeps around for a living -- well, sort of. He is suffering the perils of being an actress's spouse. As a friend points out, simulating sex in a movie is not quite the same thing as simulating death. A kiss is a kiss, but a fake gun shot is just fake. An entertaining and easy-going romantic comedy, MY WIFE IS AN ACTRESS (MA FEMME EST UNE ACTRICE) is written and directed by Yvan Attal, the picture's male lead.

Playing opposite Attal is Charlotte Gainsbourg (JANE EYRE) who was instructed by Attal to just play herself. Terence Stamp (THE LIMEY), as Jack, supplies the other end of the story's love triangle. Jack is a likable but pompous actor who also paints with what he calls "childlike spontaneity." With his wife off in London doing nude scenes with Jack in their new movie, Yvan is back home in Paris, worried as usual. You don't need to worry about the film, which is a real charmer. It contains one particularly hilarious scene that you won't soon forget.

MY WIFE IS AN ACTRESS runs 1:35. The film is in French with English subtitles and in English. It is rated R for "language and nudity/sexuality" and would be acceptable for older teenagers.
