Avenue Montaigne is a "boulevard comedy" — a breezy romp with sophisticated characters — that's actually about a boulevard. The locale is an elegant block in Paris where, on one hectic weekend, culture mavens suffer a variety of meltdowns. The film was written and directed by Daniele Thompson, who three decades ago wrote the romantic comedy Cousin Cousine.
