Overview

A French writer finds his life is once again being turned sideways by his footloose European friends in this sequel to the international hit L'Auberge Espagnole. Five years after we last saw him, Xavier Romain Duris has given up his aspirations of a career in international finance, but his new path as a writer isn't going as well as he hoped; his novel about his experiences in Spain has yet to be published, and lately he's been writing scripts for a French soap opera. When his French producers enter into a co-production agreement with a British network and Xavier lands an assignment ghost-writing a tell-all autobiography for famous fashion model Celia Shelburn Lucy Gordon, he finds himself spending plenty of time traveling between Paris and London. In London, Xavier becomes reacquainted with Wendy Kelly Reilly, whom he met during his time in Spain, and he wonders if he should take another stab at a relationship with her; Wendy is currently involved, but is increasingly frustrated with her boyfriend's drug problems and mood swings. Xavier is also infatuated with Celia, and wonders if a dalliance with the glamorous model might be possible. Needing romantic advice, Xavier turns to another old friend, Isabelle Cécile De France, a lesbian who offers her understanding of women as well as a spare bedroom in her flat. Xavier also gets pointers from his ex-girlfriend Martine Audrey Tautou, who has a child from a former beau and is trying to sort out her own romantic troubles. Russian Dolls aka Les Poupées Russes also features Kevin Bishop, reprising his role as William from the first film.

    Male Chauvonist Romance Comedy

    This is a confusing romance comedy, billing Audrey Tautou, which is why I watched it, but unfortunately she has a minor role. Kelly Reilly is the romantic lead in this whirlwind offcolor romance, which lacks focus, and a theme. While Kelly Reilly is smokin' hot, the plot is trite, but for some reason, I liked it. A confused male with all sorts of hot bed partners to choose from tries to find himself and the meaning of love? A romance comedy made for men... but the male lead is a dweeb. I'm not saying Brad Pitt... I'm just saying... Morgan Freeman at least?!?!
