When did the French get so hung up on monogamy? Apparently times have changed
for la France: Husbands feel henpecked, wives seem put upon, and affairs are
fraught with ambivalence and self-loathing. While Attal's previous feature,
My Wife Is an Actress, centered on a husband's jealousy, Happily Ever
After focuses on a wife's, as Gabrielle (Gainsbourg) agonizes over the
infidelity of Vincent (Attal) and whether or not to sleep around herself. Though
blessed with some wonderfully moving moments, this is a jigsaw puzzle of a
picture you've seen many, many times before.
