Movie Info

The biggest hit in the 27-year history of the Alliance Française French Film Festival, Julien Rappeneau's enchanting directorial debut ROSALIE BLUM is a witty and ingeniously crafted comedy about a random encounter that has unexpected and life-changing consequences. Thirty-something Vincent Machot (indelibly played by Kyan Khojandi) is a hairdresser, like his father before him. Life rotates around work, his overbearing mother who lives in the apartment upstairs, 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 (the fabulous Noémie Lvovsky). Intrigued by this mysterious woman, he begins a search to uncover the truth behind their connection... To reveal more would only spoil the surprises of Rappeneau's impeccably directed and performed tale, other than to say that a series of coincidences - both hilarious and moving - memorably brings together a group of lost souls in a manner reminiscent of Claude Berri's wonderful Hunting and Gathering. Indeed, with its themes of the importance of altruism, forgiveness and the value of compassion, ROSALIE BLUM delivers an ever-timely reminder of the best that French cinema has to offer. It's a joy to watch.

A quirky, cockles-warming adaptation of the eponymous graphic-novel trilogy by French artist Camille Jourdy.

Whimsical, tender and original, Rosalie Blum is a fabulous debut.

June 8, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's definitely the kind of old-school screwball comedy that makes you do a weird half smile like a drunk person.

Logic, simplicity and fidelity make sense of this adaptation, as it rarely happens. [Full review in Spanish]

April 17, 2017 | Full Review…

A film that provokes gratifying smiles without being a comedy, although it contains generous doses of melancholy and something more than a dramatic pose. [Full review in Spanish]

April 17, 2017 | Full Review…

The elliptical narrative structure keeps audiences guessing for much longer than one might expect.
