Enjoyable romantic comedy of two people from different worlds
2 January 2001 | by (ohio) – See all my reviews

As a result of an automobile accident, a sophisticated assistant/tv producer? (Anemone) meets her car repair/blue collar nemesis (Jugnot). They start a comic affair, but can they reconcile their totally different worlds? One scene in particular where Jugnot "dresses up" to meet her co-workers for dinner, stands out. I saw this film in French without subtitles and, although my French is not perfect, the film was quite enjoyable. It needs to be released on video & dvd !
