Do the French do rom coms better?
Do English speaking viewers like French rom coms simply because they are French? To be French, European, cultured, ‘exotic’, to operate in a relationship in a slightly different way from those in England, Australia, USA – does that make French rom com ‘other’?
Or is it the actors and the acting – that slight difference in style?
I find there’s a certain maturity to French rom coms that may be lacking in English, US and Australian romantic comedy films. A certain je ne sais quoi…
