Sacha is a lively, carefree, irresponsible musician composing jingles by day and playing jazz clubs at night. He sports a bachelor lifestyle with many young women coming and going.

He quite accidentally meets Charlotte and is immediately enamoured by her. The relationship that develops surprises him, his friends, and his mother because Charlotte, if nothing else, is age-appropriate!

But Charlotte has two ex-husbands and three children and Sacha is clearly out of his depth. The relationship ends up being extremely disruptive to Sacha’s life and his ambitions. Will their passion be enough for them to make it work?

As you may or may not know, I am not very objective when it comes to French rom coms – I approach them very optimistically, fairly confident that there won’t be crude and sexist humour. Of course they are not immune to using stereotypical images of women, or employing double standards when developing female and male characters…however, I believe French rom coms to be in a little world of their own.

This is a funny, and even a touching film. It got a bit bogged down three-quarters of the way through, but it picked up for a tremendous rom com ending. It is an enjoyable and entertaining film with not too many characters to follow and understand. It’s definitely worth a watch.
