Synopsis: A romantic comedy.
Vincent plays Jean-Marc, a career-mad and self-obsessed 40's something with
no time to spare until his path crosses that of Marie, played by Vahina
Giocante. The business man and young woman have nothing in common and should
never have met, but fate decides otherwise. Marie bring a touch of
much-needed calm to the transformation of Jean-Marc.
Le Passeur Critique:
"It is a distressing film and conveys intellectual poverty at all levels.
Some scenes resemble car commercials... Everywhere there are failed attempts
at humor and ridiculous misunderstandings. Vincent Perez's role is not
salvageable. Vahina Giocante also struggles to portray her character."
"Typically, as a writer, Luc Besson merely reproduces well-known schemes and
takes care not to leave the beaten track. Cliches, wazoo. The only good idea
in the script turns out to be the road trip. The first part of the film is a
model of what to avoid in a romantic comedy, full of almost embarrassing
situations for the main characters with awful dialogue."
