Walker's Review: Heartbreaker


A charming and witty French sex comedy.See this charming and witty French sex comedy before Hollywood gets its paws on it and turns it into a horrible Matthew McConaughey movie.

Romain Duras plays a professional "breaker-upper" - a man who's hired by concerned family members to seduce their female relative out of romances they feel are destined for failure. His latest challenge is the daughter of a flower tycoon (and probable gangster) who is successful in her own right working for a high-end auction house.

As played by French pop star Vanessa Paradis (who is also Mrs. Johnny Depp), she's a sharp young woman with a good head on her shoulders - but a bad sense of judgment when it comes to her arrogant British fianc?.

It's light and breezy and abetted by its lovely Monte Carlo locations.
