On the art of infidelity and misunderstandings involving sex and passion. A romantic film to love and fall in love with.

Charlotte (Sandrine Kiberlain) is worldly-wise. Without a second thought, she takes Simon (Vincent Macaigne), a married family man, home with her on their first date. He’s stunned at apparently having finally found the noncommittal affair he’d long been dreaming of. But as the two see more and more of each other and have ever more intimate conversations, the concept of “sex without passion” threatens to reach its limits.

Celebrated director Emmanuel Mouret from Marseille succeeds inimitably in portraying the city of love as just that, by mixing wordplay and situation comedy to create light-hearted romantic poetry that’s as agile as it is incomparably performed by the enchanting on-screen couple Sandrine Kiberlain and Vincent Macaigne.


Schauspieler, Drehbuchautor und Regisseur Emmanuel Mouret war mit seinem Vorgängerfilm ›Love Affair(s)‹ bereits 2020 zu Gast beim IFFMH. Seine elf Filme wurden vielfach ausgezeichnet. Er ist ein Meister großartig geschriebener Liebeskomödien.
