Thomas Bardinet sent a letter to about a hundred acquaintances, asking them to tell him of an extraordinary anecdote having happened to them. Among the few replies he received he chose the story of a fifty-year-old painter going through the hell of a time whereas he expected to spend a glorious night with a much younger woman. See more »
Also known as: Sweet Jacques (Canadian title) Highly enjoyable sex comedy. Sleeper of the 2002 Vancouver International Film Festival. Good insight into the sexual mores of several generations of modern Parisians. Director Thomas Bardinet and co-writer Gilles Marchand create diverse group of characters and toss them together, with lively and unpredictable results. Feisty lead performance in the role of Jacques by François Berléand (School of Flesh, 1998). Opening credits sequence in a pool worth price of admission. Great Paris locations. Who said the French couldn't make sex comedies that were both sexy and funny?
