Heartbreaker (L’arnacoeur)

Silver-tongued seducteur-for-hire Alex (Romain Duris) earns his living using his wiles to break up couples. But he’s met his match in gorgeous Juliette (Vanessa Paradis) and her charming English fiancé (Andrew Lincoln).

Director Pascal Chaumeil’s romantic comedy may have a silly premise in the seducer paid to break up couples, and the challenging rich heiress as his latest assignment – yet his debut feature surprises and enchants at every turn.

An expert screenplay that favours dry wit over sentiment is fleshed out by wonderful performances and perfect physical comedy from its two leads (Duris & Paradis). This film has a true heart at its centre and is simply funny. It’s a romantic comedy that packs warmth and humour in every moment and is an unexpected delight. Set in the luxuriant locales of Monte Carlo and Paris, it’s also gorgeous to watch.
