Shall We Kiss

When Gabriel and Emilie meet by chance, he offers her a ride, and they spend the evening talking, laughing and getting along famously. At the end of the night, Emilie declines Gabriel’s offer of “a kiss without consequences.” Emilie admonishes him that the kiss could have unexpected consequences, and tells him a story, unfolding in flashbacks, about the impossibility of indulging your desires without affecting someone else’s life.

Reactions, Awards & Festivals

Expert, intricate, ineffably droll, ultimately provocative and entirely enchanting."

The Wall Street Journal

Irresistible, enchanting…with a surprisingly sober twist."

Marie Claire

"Mouret marries Rohmer’s visual lucidity and love of smart dialogue to the sort of screwball-comedy antics that wouldn’t have seemed out of place in the films of Lubitsch or Hawks, and he does it all with a beguiling lightness of touch."
