Storyline

Sacha loves his friends, his piano and partying. At night, he plays in a jazz club and seduces pretty girls. He lives for the moment, looking for pleasure. No alarm clock, no engagement, no taxes. Charlotte has three kids, two ex-husbands and a thriving professional life. She has no room for a love story. They have nothing in common. They shouldn't be together... They're made for one another.

Trivia

Both Sacha and Charlotte's apartments were actually built in a studio. Director James Huth claims that this was to give the film some glamor and make it look like an American comedy from the fifties, having been inspired by directors such as Billy Wilder, Frank Capra and George Cukor. See more »

Stumbling upon and into
27 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

Sophie Marceau is still able to enchant men (and probably some women too along the way). Apart from her obvious good looks she's also a good actress, which she has proved in other movies as well (one with Monica Belucci comes to mind though I forgot the title). And while she's not the lead role here, she is second to the man with issues. The good thing is, her character is not just some woman, but is fully fleshed out as well.

While our main character has obvious issues, we still root for him. Not all his moves might feel logic, but life does take crazy turns sometimes. His "fear" is a bit underplayed I guess, but that is not really that bad a thing. Actually you might credit the movie for not making it a bigger issue. You will see where this is going, but that doesn't take the fun of getting there.
