Mama, There’s a Man in Your Bed, an appealing, often playfully ironic French romance manages to say a lot about class and race without the edgy self-consciousness of most American films dealing with those subjects. A beleaguered yuppie president of a yogurt company falls desperately in love with the robust black woman who cleans his office to support her five children. Directed by Coline Serreau (Three Men and a Cradle, remade in the U.S. as Three Men and a Baby), it was originally titled ”Romauld et Juliet,” the names of the unlikely lovers. You never know what’s coming next, so keep your French dictionary nearby as the English subtitles are often difficult to decipher against a light background. The best line is innocently spoken by Juliet’s son: ”Mama, there’s a man in your bed and he’s white.” B+
