Storyline

When Valérie's husband Yves confesses he's in love with another woman, she happens into a judo club and begins lessons. She likes it, she's a natural, and she's attracted to Bruno, the quiet instructor. He likes her as well, but sees social class as a barrier, and Yves never seems to be too far away. Valérie's two close friends have their own stories: Annette is continuously looking for a husband, with little luck. Clara cares more about wealth and power, and takes up with the country's finance minister, an older man who flips for her. Meanwhile, Yves's lover doesn't seem in a hurry to leave her husband, so Valérie looks good to him from time to time. Will Bruno ever make a move? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Judo brings people together
12 December 2002 | by (Huntington Woods, Michigan) – See all my reviews

VIVE NOUS! Director/lead Camile de Casabianca. Judo brings couples together in this delightful romantic comedy. Valérie (Camile de Casabianca, a Leslie Caron-type pixie) is married to a selfish heel. Yves (Thibault de Montalembert) is cheating on her and threatens to divorce her. Impulsively, she takes up judo and becomes skilled. She and Bruno (Dieudonné), her manly judo teacher, are attracted to each other, but their romance is thwarted by Yves' indecision about divorce. Of her men-hungry friends, Annette (Michèle Bernier) finds rich banker Alain (Daniel Prévost) but Clara (Emmanuelle Devos) is still looking. Marc (Pascal Elbé) is Bruno's sensible assistant- confidant. Dieudonné was a scheming clairvoyant in Voyance et Manigances.
