Jed prepares to interview French cineaste and self-appointed expert on the nature of love - Thierry Grimandi. The worldly and somewhat jaded Jed is dead-set on dismissing the auteur's musings as pompous and, well French, until his own relationship with Cheryl starts to fall apart and he is forced to re-evaluate the illusive subject. Soon everyone is talking about love: his relationship counselor, drinking buddy Marcus and Marcus' girlfriend SophieBeginnings, endings, tricks...could the French be on to something? Written by
I caught this is a repeat on BBC i-Player and I was very pleasantly surprised. This was the best film that I have seen in a few years. Not pretentious at all, but a well-made sweet film with some very human themes. The acting was just great and really believable. Cantona adds a nice touch - especially for those United fans who remember that Kung-fu kick and the sardines... What I liked most was how the script was so realistic and yet incorporated so many funny lines; I was cracking up with laughter and then almost had tears in my eyes... Really nice one!
This won't appeal to everyone though - a couple of the reviewers tried to compare this to Notting Hill - please!!!
