One, two, three....once Carrie (Andie MacDowell) reaches 33 when listing the number of her lovers, she concludes, as though merely discussing the weather forecast: "So, there we go. Less than Madonna and more than Princess Diana, I hope." This blockbusting romantic comedy, which unexpectedly broke box office records and earned over 245 million USD, has Charles (Hugh Grant) facing Carrie at the Café Rouge in London, sweating and rolling his eyes profusely when he learns that he is not No.34 but No.32 on the list. The Café Rouge is an impressive chain of French bistros that has branched throughout Britain, with more than 100 outlets. The charmingly simple interior and images of Paris, both personal and impersonal at the same time, serve as the ideal background for the most unimaginable lunchtime conversations.
