Storyline

Gabrielle, a pleasant woman in her sixties, learns that she is about to be evicted from her second-hand shop, and that she is about to become a grandmother. Her friends advise her to take this opportunity to begin enjoying the joys of retirement. However, at the same time, Gabrielle meets Fred, a well-built young man whose youth attracts her as much her maturity, her freedom, and her social standing fascinates him. Although their respective circle of friends are horrified by the relationship (his friends think she's an elderly cougar....her friends think he's a gigolo), Fred and Gabrielle are going to try and enjoy their love story, ignoring the boundaries of age and social class.

In love with a younger man
30 August 2012 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

The closing of an antique shop rallies a group of friends around Gabrielle Mathey who, perhaps because of her lack of business acumen, loses her store. Going to a house where its contents are being sold, she runs into an intense young man, Fred, whom she watches stealing a valuable piece. Confronting him, turns out into an interest from Fred in the older woman who had the guts to tell him off.

When Fred begins going to Gabrielle, neither had an idea about how they would be involved in a sexual relationship. Gabrielle, in her sixties, was an attractive older woman, while Fred, in his middle twenties, perhaps, seems to be the wrong candidate to fall for the mature woman. The fact remains they fall heads over heels in a relationship one realizes will not end well. The final straw that broke the camel's back comes in the way of a younger Portuguese woman who became pregnant by Fred, leaving Gabrielle hurt, while not regretting the happy days she spent with the young lover.

A French-Swiss comedy directed by Patricia Plattner, whose work is new to this viewer. The main interest in watching was the presence of Bernadette Lafont, an actress who always gives her best in each new appearance. She does not disappoint in her take of Gabrielle. The screenplay was written by Ms. Plattner in collaboration with Christian Lyon, Aude Py and Blandine Stinzy. The co-production was shot entirely in Geneva and a sequence in Portugal. The film, although predictable is enjoyable.

Bernadette Lafont has enjoyed a long career in her native France. As Gabrielle she adds another good role to the characters she has created for our entertainment. The object of her reawakened sexual desire is Pio Marmai, a young actor who was asked the task of baring it all for the camera. He does not hide anything from Gabrielle, or the viewer as he does not seem to be shy in showing his charms. Lou Doillon, Jane Birkin's daughter appears as Gabrielle's daughter Elvire. The supporting cast includes Sacha Bourdo, Alexandra Stewart, Jean-Paul Wenzel, and Gregoire Oestermann, among others.
