This month we are following the new releases as well as our last month movie (Bande de filles) with a upbeat comedy following a group of single girlfriends for a movie that can be qualified as the French Bridget Jones.
“Marie and Eric, a couple in their thirties who have been together since college, buy their first apartment when Marie is suddenly overcome by doubt. Her encounter with a handsome, dark-haired man forces her to make a decision: she leaves Eric to throw herself into the big sea of pleasure and freedom. But she actually ends up on the bottom of the pool, where she discovers a world without pity: at her age, being single is quickly perceived as a suspicious defect. Enlightened by new friendships, Marie learns to envisage her single life as a chance to become even stronger and to at last be ready to be happy.”
If the movie is not the most original in its subject matter, it clearly compensates this by offering a gallery of touching and well written characters. Expect a very energetic, funny and bubbly movie with a poppy modern soundtrack.
Be there for 5.45 to enjoy our French baguette, charcuterie, cheese and wine buffet before the movie starts !
