You might have remember a little French confection that hit your local arthouse a couple years ago entitled "L'Auberge Espangnol." The French film from director Cedric Klapisch starred Audrey Tautou and Romain Duris in a multi-character tale that wrapped up drama, romance and comedy in one compelling package. It already spawned the sequel "Russian Dolls," with another, "Chinese Puzzle," on the way, but before audiences see that, Klapisch has another film hitting theaters.
Starring Karin Viard and Gilles Lelouche, "My Piece Of The Pie" is another comedic and romantic effort, this time around with a plot touching upon the economic crisis that this gripped much of the world. The story centers on a single mother (Viard) who gets laid off from her blue collar job in a French seaside town. With few employment prospects on the horizon, she takes a job cleaning the Paris apartment of the succesful, cocky power broker Steve (Lelouche). And as you'll see in the exclusive clip from the film below, the pair develop a fast friendship that grows into something more, while the film itself carries a sting of social satire.
"My Piece Of The Pie" is available On Demand right now, and rolls into theaters starting Friday, December 9th. Watch the clip below.
