Ninette is a Spanish comedy film directed by José Luis Garci. Released in 2005, it is based on the plays Ninette y un señor de Murcia and Ninette, modas de París by Miguel Mihura.


Ninette Sánchez (Elsa Pataky) is an intelligent, sexy, charming and spontaneous Parisian girl, daughter of Spanish republican exiles, working in the Galeries Lafayette. Her ingenuousness and beauty charms Andrés (Carlos Hipólito), a humble Spanish vendor of religious items from Murcia, who is staying with her family after he came to Paris to meet "easy" French women. Andrés falls for her many charms. Unfortunately, Ninette's parents, Armando (Enrique Villén) and Bernarda (Beatriz Carvajal) do not take the news well when Ninette announces that she is pregnant.
