FIVE FUNNY FRENCH FILMS

Amour et turbulences

Love Is in the Air

FOR MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY

In this exuberant comedy, soon-to-be-married artist Julie (Ludivine Sagnier) and continent-hopping lawyer and playboy Antoine (Nicolas Bedos) find themselves seated next to each other on a flight to Paris. But this isn’t their first meeting: He broke her heart three years prior, and they have not spoken since. Their complicated history unfolds in flashback over the course of the trip, entertaining fellow passengers who are not shy about expressing their opinions. A feisty ensemble cast and jazzy soundtrack enrich this sexy and delirious love story. 

“Knowingly sarcastic in its self-awareness without falling back on the gawky meta-squealing of its American (romantic comedy) counterparts.” —Slant
