Two of French cinema's brightest things team up in this delightful comedy about life, love and breakups, which earned an astonishing 10 million Euros at the French box office in just 10 days.
Romain Duris (THE BEAT THAT MY HEART SKIPPED) and Vanessa Paradis (GIRL ON THE BRIDGE) play fools for love when an indecent business opportunity sees their paths cross.
Sibling business partners Alex (Duris) and Mélanie (Ferrier) earn a living orchestrating the separation of couples whose spark has fizzled out.
When they take on a potentially problematic job that requires a swift one-week turnaround, their cucumber-cool composure is in danger of being ruffled.
In tackling their toughest couple yet, will Alex's budding infatuation with their latest target (Paradis) upset the duo's scheme?

A film to be seen.

This is great fun. It is an excellent romantic comedy with a hugely likeable cast. I had to drag my wife along as she has subtitlephobia and she thought it was very funny. I thoroughly recommend this film.
