A lawyer (Fabrice Luchini) come to Monaco to defend a wealthy woman who is facing murder charges.   His cilent's son has provide the lawyer with a bodyguard (Roschdy Zem).  However, the local weather girl/ slut (Louise Bourgoin) has set her sights on the lawyer and makes his life a wreck.  Can the bodyguuard step in and fix everything so the lawyer can focus on the trial and stay away from teh she-devil?

THE GIRL FROM MONACO is a movie about an upright lawyer who tries to loosen up only to have it get him in trouble.  He forms a bond with his bodyguard (whose life is strict and ordered).   The film is filled with humor, a little suspense, and sexual tension.  Part of the ending I saw coming while the other part I didn't.   Director Anne Fontaine has crafted an interesting and sexy film about life and relationships.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
THE MAKING OF THE GIRL FROM MONACO focuses on the filming of sequence 14 in the movie with behind-the-scenes footage from the filming and commentary by the director Anne Fontaine and actor Fabrice Luchini.   It is an interesting direction to take a featurette where you usually have an audio commentary or a basic behind-the-scenes featurette.
 
FINAL ANALYSIS:  THE GIRL FROM MONACO is sexy and intriguing.
