The biggest hit in the 27-year of the Alliance Francaise French Film Festival.
Julien Rappeneau’s enchanting directorial debut ROSALIE BLUM is a warm, witty and impeccably performed comedy
about a random encounter that has unexpected and far-reaching consequences.
Thirty-something Vincent Machot (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 (Noémie Lvovsky). Intrigued by this mysterious woman, he begins following her…
To reveal more would only spoil the surprises of Rappeneau’s ingeniously structured tale, other than to say that a series
of coincidences – both hilarious and dramatic – 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 fraternity, love and the need for human connection, ROSALIE BLUM delivers a timely reminder
of the best that French cinema has to offer.
