Storyline

Vivien and Chloe are two very different cousins living in Brooklyn who have been inseparable ever since they were children. At least, they were until recently. The sudden passing of their Aunt Isabelle has left them with a challenging inheritance: their aunt's quaint Boulangerie, named Isabelle's. Vivien, who has postponed her dream trip to Europe to help run the shop, wants to keep things traditional, but Chloe, who works as Fernando's assistant, a chef for a popular daytime cooking TV show, feels they should put a modern spin on things. But when the bank reveals that the Boulangerie is in danger of being foreclosed, Vivien and Chloe must put the baking mitts down to preserve their family's legacy. Vivien tries to deceive the bank pretending that Dave, her now widower uncle, lives on the boulangerie after the loss of his home by the debts, being helped by Paul, the agent sent by the bank. The trouble increases when Paul shows a love interest by Vivien, meanwhile Fernando and Chloe ... Written by Chockys

Couldn't Connect With the Characters Here
21 March 2017 | by larrys3See all my reviews

This romantic comedy is probably more of a fantasy tale than anything else. There were a few chuckles and some sweet moments along the way, but, unfortunately, I found most of the film to be quite unfunny even annoying at times.

Two cousins Vivien and Chloe, Aimee Teegarden and Krysta Rodriguez respectively, lost their parents on the same day in an accident, and were taken in by their Aunt Isabelle, who owns a long established bakery in Brooklyn. However, when Isabelle suddenly passes and leaves the shop to her two nieces, she also leaves a huge debt load to the bank, who is looking to foreclose on the property asap. Thus, Vivien and Chloe will race against time to find a way of keeping the bakery afloat.

There's actually a large ensemble cast here, whose characters all intersect with each other throughout the movie. The film was directed by Gustavo Ron, who also co-wrote the script with Paco Zegers.

Overall, as mentioned, there are some moments to like here but the movie just came across to me, for the most part, as too awkward and staged, so that I couldn't connect with its characters.
