Storyline

Julien Monnier has a serious problem. Though he's a brilliant couples counselor, he can't keep a woman in his life for more than two weeks. Indeed, ever since his childhood, Julien jinxes every woman who falls in love with him. But it's not just any small jinx. It's the kind that sends you to the hospital several times a week, that destroys your professional life or that turns your friends into enemies. Julien is strictly speaking a true black cat for women. Joanna Sorini will soon learn this at her expense the day she meets him. A career that's just taking off, a love life that finally seems to be taking a good turn, all that may just change. Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

Trivia

Screenwriter Luc Bossi was inspired by a story a friend told him of how his wife took the blame for a speeding charge, pretending she was the driver so that her husband wouldn't have points taken off his license, which subsequently caused her a number of problems with the police. From this, Bossi imagined the story of a man who brought bad luck to the women he dated. See more »

Excellent movie, in the life of a man that everything goes wrong with women, without seeking he found the balance. Very interesting love Plot, nice stories with unimaginable events; Those are very witty and very funny, I loved the fresh point of view, very European about the troubles, you can not miss this one. Enjoyable, You won't be able to stop laughing I promise. The characters are so charming and there is an interesting way to develop the story, you will be analyzing yourself about your relationships. I really love a movie that can do that... The movies that can go further 65 minutes, I hope you will find it interesting like I did.
