Pascal Chaumeil makes a fantastic feature debut with the irresistible high-concept romantic comedy Heartbreaker, starring some of France's most acclaimed stars, Romain Duris (The Beat That My Heart Skipped, TFF '05) and César Award winner Vanessa Paradis (Girl on the Bridge). Alex (Duris), his sister (Julie Ferrier), and her husband (François Damiens) have a budding young business: They break hearts for a living. More specifically, they are hired to split up couples who don't realize that they're just not meant for one another. Who hires them? Concerned friends or over-protective family members keep them busy. But the handsome and charming Alex and his team have met the toughest couple yet, and their undefeated record—not to mention a huge payday—hangs in the balance. The mark is Juliette (Paradis), a happily engaged no-nonsense woman about to be hitched to the perfect guy. With their schemes having little effect on the impenetrable Juliette, the clock is ticking to her wedding day….
Shot in the glamour and whimsy of Monte Carlo, this charming and unique romantic comedy will have audiences buckling with laughter. Chaumeil beautifully illustrates that love and laughter are the best universal languages.
