Storyline

7 a.m. Catherine receives a phone call from someone called Kirsch. This untimely call throws her into a great state of agitation, which she takes out on her boyfriend, Raphaël. Upset, in turn, Raphaël fights with his employer and even succeeds in getting himself fired. To excuse himself for his early morning call, Kirsch decides to send Catherine a bouquet of flowers, which, in Catherine's absence, winds up with her neighbors Alice and Antoine. The bouquet will go from hand to hand, setting off all manner of mistakes, misunderstanding and misinterpretations. The bouquet is the catalyst of a multitude of insignificant events, which reveal the whimsy of our lives today. Written by Aline

A telephone call 15 years later
15 April 2005 | by Red-125See all my reviews

C'est le bouquet! (2002) (Special Delivery) is a French film co-written and directed by Jeanne Labrune. I saw this film, along with with Labrune's "Tomorrow is Another Day," at the 2005 Cinefranco Film Festival in Toronto. (www.cinefranco.com)

Sandrine Kiberlain plays Catherine, a happily married woman who is awakened at 7:00 AM by a telephone call from a former lover. Her husband, Raphaël, (played by Jean-Pierre Darroussin) is naturally curious about this call and the caller. However, Raphaël has his own problems at work, where he's being aided by his loyal co-worker, who also wouldn't mind going to bed with him. Characters meet by chance, a bouquet of flowers is passed from apartment to apartment, and people come together and almost come together.

As in "Tomorrow is Another Day," the film is worth seeing for the glimpse it gives of one segment of Parisian society. It's certainly a distorted glimpse, but it's not a boring one.
