Gird your bits for subtitles, but it's worth it. Heartbreaker is hilarious.
It's a French screwball comedy in the 1930s sense of the term, but really well written and well cast. If you have Netflix you can download it immediately. An hour and 44 minutes well spent. As a side note to the movie, the female romantic lead has this big gap between her front teeth. Love it! She's very pretty, but with this delightful flaw. Any American actress would have had that erased immediately and much to her detriment. Nicholas Cage used to have such a distinctive gap back in the 80s when he did Valley Girl, but now sadly it's gone. Listen up Hollywood, pretty with a flaw becomes intriguing / interesting / memorable. Put watching Heartbreaker at the top of your to do list. You can thank me later.

If you're ten minutes in and thinking, "Adrianne, you're nuts," stick with it. There are some super cute moments. Good date night movie, maybe not for the single gentlemen.ReplyDelete
Aah, it turns out the girl with the gap is Johnny Depp's long time paramour. So obviously he agrees with me that a small flaw turns beauty into something intriguing.ReplyDelete
Yes, I think Ms. Paradis is actually a model in France, though I wouldn't quote me on that.ReplyDelete
I bet she is. She reminds me slightly of Lauren Hutton. It's probably the gap. ;O)ReplyDelete
