The great Fabrice Luchini stars as a middle-aged celebrity lawyer defending a matron(legendary Chabrol star Stephane Audran, in a nearly silent role)
in the municipality of the late Princess Grace. Girl traces an unexpected love triangle between the lawyer, the local TV weather girl (Louise Bourgoin, a marvellous discovery who had previously been an actual TV weather girl) and the lawyer’s Zen-like bodyguard (Roschdy Zem, of the
Oscar-nominated Algerian World War II film Indigènes) (31 minutes).
