In her wry, sharply observed studies of class and social relationships, actor, writer, and director Agnès Jaoui zeroes in on the follies and foibles of the French bourgeoisie and the neuroses, power plays, and quotidian dramas that consume her hopelessly and hilariously self-absorbed characters. Her acclaimed first two features, THE TASTE OF OTHERS and LOOK AT ME—both cowritten with her regular collaborator Jean-Pierre Bacri—are deft, incisive comedies of manners that balance cunning wit with touching empathy.
