Movie Info

In the second installment in director Lucas Belvaux's trilogy, the comedy centers around how a husband's eccentric behavior leads to his wife having suspicions about their marriage. Cecile is a teacher who is still madly in love with her husband Alain, a hypochondriac who is convinced that a routine operation will take his life. He doesn't want to alarm his wife, and she mistakes his secrecy for him having an affair. Enter Pascal, who is hired by Cecile to track Alain, but who falls in love with Cecile instead.

Critic Reviews for Un Couple Épatant

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (15)

Each movie casts light on the others. And after watching all three, a profound blending of the stories percolates in your head.

Belvaux beautifully controls all three styles and stories -- even though he's least successful with the comedy Couple.

June 3, 2004 | Rating: 3/4

Charmingly offbeat in the vein of early Woody Allen.

May 28, 2004 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Boosted by Morel's subtly hilarious, hangdog performance, the film offers a cunning blend of door-slamming farce and whimsical marital love story.

May 7, 2004 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

This comedy built around marital misunderstanding is the weak link.

May 7, 2004

More remarkable as an experiment than a film.
