48 Hours a Day

Aure Atika and Antoine de Caunes star as a harried professional couple in Paris who bicker over their household and parenting responsibilities. After Atika loses a prestigious account at her ad agency, she decides to get even with her spouse and announces she's taken a six-month assignment in Tokyo, secretly moving in with a girlfriend and leaving him to mind their two young kids. Catherine Castel makes her writing and directing debut with this French comedy, whose notable achievement is that it's stupid enough to be an American comedy. The contrived premise is to blame, though there are some solid laughs along the periphery, particularly in Atika's paranoid reveries about what her husband is doing while she's gone. With Victoria Abril. In French with subtitles. 85 min.
