Trivia

Jean Dujardin was shortened with different camera tricks like being shot from above, on his knees or sitting on a wheeled stool. During his dialogue scenes with Virginie Efira, which were often shot without these tricks, he had to look up (thus above her head) while she had to look down (at his chest). See more »

Goofs

When he gets out of his car, he is taller than the car, although he should be shorter with his 1,36m. See more »

Delightful french movie
23 December 2016 | by cocheSee all my reviews

Up for love is a movie about Alexandre, a little man that with his charming and gallant attitude tries to win the heart of equally charming and pretty Diana. I felt identified with Alexandre, since in the past I had a girlfriend that was taller than me xD

The movie focus a little in the socially acceptable side of the relationship without becoming too serious. It also has a few funny moments here and there. I think the best of the film is the performance of both actors, but I specially like Virginie's Efira portrayal of Diana.

Finally, it has been a long time since I don't see a delightful movie like this, and Up for Love becomes like an oasis in the middle of Hollywood blockbuster movies that I usually end up watching. I enjoyed it a lot.
