The Valet (La Doublure) (PG-13)

Comedy 85 April 20, 2007

When billionaire Pierre Levasseur is snapped by a papparazzo with Elena, his dazzling, supermodel mistress, he tries to avoid a catastrophic divorce by coming up with an outrageous lie. He asserts to his wife that a third person, a passerby, François Pignon, who is also on the photograph, was in fact with Elena. She's Pignon's girlfriend not his. Pignon is a parking valet. He's a very ordinary fellow. Levasseur, to back up his lie, has to convince the overly beautiful Elena to go live with Pignon. Elena, shacked up with Pignon, is a bird of paradise in an apartment in the sticks. It's also a load of comic situations for The Valet.
