1809, France. Captain Neuville is called to the front, leaving his future bride heartbroken. Her sister decides to write letters on his behalf to cheer her up. But it all goes south when Neuville reappears.
A successful businessman, who is flirtatious and a compulsive liar by nature, pretends to be confined to a wheelchair in an artful bid to seduce a young woman. His clever ruse goes pear-shaped when he is introduced to his fiance's sister who happens to be in a wheelchair too.Written by
Seen this on an O/S flight (with sub titles). Loved it so much, I watched it on the return flight 8 weeks later. Probably the best foreign language film I've seen - especially in the romantic comedy genre. Story was original, believable, funny, tragic & well executed. The cast seem perfectly matched & the writer & director have done an excellent job. Watch out for Jocelyn (the main character's) father - he's an absolute riot!!. Persevere with the subtitles - A must watch of 2018.
