A sweet but never saccharine French comedy about three misfits who bring out the best in each other.
Julien Rappeneau’s enchanting directorial debut is a warm, witty and impeccably performed comedy about a random encounter that has unexpected and far-reaching consequences. Thirty-something Vincent Machot is a hairdresser whose life rotates around work, his overbearing mother and a womanising cousin constantly trying to set him up. But one morning Vincent experiences a powerful déjà-vu when he meets the gaze of a grocery store clerk, Rosalie Blum.
And so begins a search to uncover the truth behind their connection. With its themes of altruism, forgiveness and the value of compassion, Rosalie Blum is a timely reminder of the best that French cinema has to offer.
Based on the graphic-novel trilogy by French artist Camille Jourdy.
A joy! Fresh and engaging. A feel-good film which combines humour and eccentric touches with surges of genuine emotion. Light and life-affirming. – Hollywood Reporter
