Falling in love again
8 March 2013 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Sido, a middle aged woman, finds herself divorced trying to exert her rights, chasing her ex-husband who is reluctant to leave the comforts of living in the country house he has come to cherish. Sido will not have it; after all, he got the Paris apartment, as part of the settlement. Single life is new to her. The house, located in the small town where she grew up, brings back happy memories, but she is not ready for living in such small community where everyone knows her business.

Her friends Odile and Yvonne come to her rescue. They want to fix Sido up with eligible bachelors. Odile has in mind Georges, a widower, who is a well to do landscape artist, the only problem being his age; he is seventy six. Sido is surprised to find Jo Marengo, the man who deflowered her. He is still around and a womanizer. Georges tries to pursue her, but although a nice catch, there is no chemistry between them. Bernadette, her neighbor wants her to consider her son, Jean-Paul, who we learn, had a fling with Sido.

A sunny comedy made for French television. Directed by Olivier Peray, and written by Caroline Vignal. The film examines the life of a vital woman now on her own. Sido arouses something in the men she comes in contact. Even her old husband, Francis, misses her cooking, though he was two-timing her with his own lover. This is a delightful comedy without an agenda to be savored by audiences that appreciate the genre.

Ariane Ascaride is basically the main reason to watch the comedy. She is an accomplished player whose no-nonsense style endears her to the public. As Sido, she exemplifies an independent spirit who gave her best and was betrayed by a husband who never loved her. The wonderful Jean- Francois Stevenin has fun playing Jo Marengo, the man who goes way back with Sido. Michel Aumont is perfect as the widower who likes Sido, but ultimately, realizes she is not for him because there is no chemistry. The supporting cast is fun to watch.
