Storyline

Laura is still waiting for Prince Charming at the age of 24. So when Sandro appears at a party, exactly like her Prince would in her dreams, she thinks she's found the right one. But then again, when she meets Maxime, Laura starts to wonder if some Princes could be more charming than others? Of course Sandro has problems of his own : his father, Pierre, just bumped into Madam Irma at his father's funeral and this reminded him of the date of his own death which Madame Irma had predicted ages ago. Now Pierre is unable to make any plans, not with his new partner Eleonore, nor with Sandro. And Maxime has his own problems, and so does Eleonore, Marianne, Jacqueline and many others. But don't worry, in the end, they'll all live happily ever after. Written by Memento

A rather cynical anti-romance.
2 October 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Jean-Pierre Bacri and his real-life wife, Agnès Jaoui starred in this film, co-wrote it and Jaoui directed it! This is a huge accomplishment--it's just too bad I didn't particularly enjoy the film. This is because it's supposed to be a romance but there isn't that much in it that truly is romantic. In fact, most all the folks in the film have had repeated marriages and failed relationships--and the film seems to say this is the new normal. To me, this is rather sad---and is the antithesis of romance--especially as some folks in the film have SERIOUS intimacy issues. This does not mean I hated the film--just many of the characters. One of the only ones I really did enjoy watching was Bacri's. Initially, he was a nasty, selfish jerk and seeing him slowly evolve into a human being as well as why this occurred was very satisfying. But for the rest--they just seemed like a lot of seriously screwed up people who I never would like to meet or get to know better. NOT a film to see with someone you love nor did I see it as a comedy--though IMDb lists it as one.
