Romantic Dramedy

The first film that I saw by Yvan Attal was My Wife is an Actress and Happily Ever After has the same leads, who are Attal and his real life spouse, the stunningly beautiful Charlotte Gainsbourg, and they once again play a husband and wife (along with their real son playing their son). It’s a film that careens joyously at times between happiness and sadness as we follow the couple and their relationship. Filled with music that I loved and with great performances, it’s a fairly unique, almost feel-good film about adultery and love in France. An unromantic look at romance that secretly believes that love conquers all.
