Movie Info

A closeted Swiss professor's closely guarded sexuality threatens to become front page news when he is appointed guardian to a recalcitrant teen in this light and lively comedy starring Jean-Calude Brialy and Sabine Haudepin. Swiss law states that any citizen can be appointed guardian to a child and must assume that responsibility if so named. When outwardly straight, happily married professor and author Jean-Pierre learns that he has been named guardian of an orphaned teenage boy, his attempts to discourage the judge from placing him in charge of the boy prompt the magistrate to launch an investigation into his suitability for the task. Realizing that his livelihood is on the line, Jean-Pierre attempts to repair his relationship with Alice, the woman and friend who once married him as a favor. As the teen he has been placed in charge of takes the initiative to move in with him, Jean-Pierre's secret threatens to become the talk of the town and his life begins to unravel at the seams. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for As Luck Would Have It

This movie won me over. I watched it, expecting to think it was a mediocre or even bad movie, but by the end I cared about these people and what happend to them. The plot was a bit piece-meal--scenes didn't necessary follow what came before them--which worked for the most part, but made for some really rough transitions. The actors were charismatic, and the dialogue was memorable. Overall, a pretty decent movie.
