9. Priceless

Audrey Tautou (of Amelie fame) plays Irene, a beautiful young gold-digger in the South of France. One night – after her elderly boyfriend has fallen asleep – she mistakes the mild-mannered (and penniless) bartender in her hotel for a wealthy man. One thing leads to another, and a very glamorous farce ensues.

Priceless is a lightweight, charming comedy that aspires to be the French Breakfast at Tiffany’s and comes pretty close. It won’t win any awards, but it’s stylish, funny and highly entertaining from start to finish. Sure to cheer you up even in the midst of a grim British winter.
