For those who wish to decode The Names of Love, there's a sharp commentary on French prejudices, character types, history, and culture embedded in Michel Leclerc's droll autobiographical French comedy. But the surface story works just fine too: A free-spirited, left-wing, seductive young Frenchwoman, daughter of an Algerian immigrant, meets an uptight, square, middle-aged Frenchman whose Jewish mother survived the Holocaust. Opposites ignite, emphasized by Leclerc's playful use of contradictions, including deadpan performances juxtaposed with glam cinematography. --Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly.

a delightful french farce that is great for a quiet nights viewing without taxing the gray matter too much. If you like foreign movies this worth a look.
