Rosalie Blum (15)

rosalieJulien Rappeneau’s enchanting directorial debut emerges as a warm, witty and impeccably performed drama-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 assistant, Rosalie Blum (Noémie Lvovsky). Intrigued by this mysterious woman, he begins following her… With its themes of fraternity, love and the need for human connection, Rosalie Blum delivers a timely reminder of the best that French culture has to offer. It’s a joy to watch.
