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.

"My Piece of the Pie"When "The Company Men" arrived, people found it difficult to have sympathy for the three main characters -- each was an upper-class employee being fucked over by an even richer fat cat. Maybe it would've done some good to have one of the prominent characters be working class (Kevin Costner fills that void, though he's a side character that serves only to tease Ben Affleck and, in the end, teach him a lesson), as a character losing his BMW and country club privileges is only going to induce eye-rolls. French film "My Piece of the Pie" at first splits its time between power broker Steve (Gilles Lellouche, "Tell No One") and the recently laid-off factory worker France (Karin Viard, "Potiche"), portraying the former as a cocky playboy and the latter as a worn-out mother on the verge of suicide.
