Storyline

Sacha loves his friends, his piano and partying. At night, he plays in a jazz club and seduces pretty girls. He lives for the moment, looking for pleasure. No alarm clock, no engagement, no taxes. Charlotte has three kids, two ex-husbands and a thriving professional life. She has no room for a love story. They have nothing in common. They shouldn't be together... They're made for one another.

Hilarious, and I'm not even French
30 April 2018 | by cimartelSee all my reviews

I came here to add my rating when I saw there's a reviewer who gave it 1 star. I respect but fully disagree with that rating. First the acting is great all around including the children. Second, the pace is fast, not a boring moment which is rare for a romantic comedy. And third, I laughed out loud several times and I'm Latin American. I've watched hundreds of comedies, both film and TV, and few have made laugh out loud. I even debated if give it 8 only for this reason. Ok, it's not 8 stars, but this film will be part of my "comfort food" films collection, which are movies I re-watch when not in a mood to put my brain to work. Definitely a good addition.
