Storyline

Anne-Marie lives an easy life with Gilbert, a rich plastic surgeon: a beautiful house, a doggy, a cleaning lady, expensive furniture, the lot. Not so easy in fact when she thinks twice. She does not get on with her husband any longer. She gets on his nerves and he does not attract her any longer. She feels good only when she jogs on the beach and ... when she is the arms of her lover, Leo. One day, Gilbert gets killed in a car accident. Good news, since she will be able to live with Leo. The trouble is her well-meaning family settle at her villa with a view to supporting the "poor widow" morally. Anne-Marie just cannot admit she is not distressed at all, especially to her son Christophe. She is now even more of a prisoner than when Gilbert was alive... Written by Guy Bellinger

Enfin Veuve : An unusual comedy film directed by Isabelle Mergault.
11 November 2014 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

"The Merry Widow" is a highly unusual comedy film as it does not rely on gimmicks and absurdities to tell the tale of a middle aged widow who manages to find her true love.Isabelle Mergault adds elements of drama in order to portray a difficult love story of Anne-Marie who has been recently widowed.In times of grief,family members provide succour but they have been ridiculed in this film.Enfin Veuve does not provide any easy solutions to its lovers in order to come closer.It makes people laugh as its protagonists get rid of all obstacles in their midst to unite.Actors Jacques Gamblin and Michèle Laroque are perfect in their roles as lovers who convey that widowhood is not a hindrance if a widow wishes to proclaim her love.There is hardly any film producing nation as prolific as France where women directors do not have to suffer any kind of prejudice to make films of their choice.If one looks at the films made by them,one would not fail to remark that many of them have been made by actresses who have had second innings as film directors.Isabelle Mergault has maintained a film per year in her three decade long career as an actress."Enfin Veuve" / The merry widow is her second successful film as a director after tasting success with "Je Vous Trouve Très Beau".
