Storyline

Odile has 42 years, an actress and single mother. One day, her 18 year old daughter decided to live alone. All of a sudden, alone in her empty house, the anguish takes over. But she decided to do something about it. After some nights out with no interest and some failed encounters, Odile falls desperately in love with Kader, a mysterious man. Perhaps she found the man of her life? What their friends may think? What may her daughter say? And about the "Adamo" nights she loved so much?

Semi-romantic fun
2 July 2006 | by uk-21See all my reviews

Generally I love the way French film makers look at love and romance. This movie proves that romantic fare does not have to drip with sugar, but can be light-hearted and fun. It also shows that full-on action is no requirement for setting the mood. The "kissing-chase" must be one of the most unconventional romantic scenes that I have seen in a movie, only rivaled by the "kissing-instructions" in Amelie. The movie has quite a few unexpected gem-moments, for example the bathroom scene in the nightclub, where the lead actress is caught between to would-be model types preening in front of the mirror. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie!
