You could say Alex Lippi is a ladies' man but it is not true. Of course he has already wooed and charmed armies of women, young and less young, French and foreign. But Alex does it only on active service. Indeed he is appointed to break up undesired couplings. This time he must prevent a rich young lady from marrying an English millionaire. The girl is beautiful and the future husband a perfect match. Will he manage to accomplish this difficult mission?

User Review

A smart & funny romantic comedy!

Rating: 10/10

I saw the movie last night and I really loved it. It's funny and smart.
Vanessa Paradis and Romain Duris form a very glamorous couple on screen
and the supporting roles (Julie Ferrier and François Damiens) are
great. The story is about Alex Lippi (Duris) a con man specialized in
breaking romances. He is hired by Juliette's father to prevent her from
marrying the wrong guy. The things is Alex has only one week to seduce
Juliette (Paradis) who doesn't seem to fall for any of his tricks…

If you're looking for a nice chick flick, you should definitely see
this one!

And if you liked this movie, I recommend you another French romantic
comedy called "Priceless" ("Hors De Prix") with Audrey Tautou which is
very good as well.
