The Queen of Hearts
| 84 min
Adèle's attempt to recover from a breakup leads to surprising results. Jumping from one lover to the next, she realizes that all of them are strangely similar.
To escape her life crisis, Adèle moves in with her cousin Rachel, who reluctantly takes her in and gets her a job. Rachel also gives the idea of compensating for the lack of a real relationship by having a series of one-night-stands.
"Writer-director Valérie Donzelli's style seems in many ways an amalgam of Jean-Luc Godard and Eric Rohmer, except that everything is told from a woman's point of view.
Her three would-be lovers are all played by the same person, the amusing and tongue-in-cheek Jérémie Elkaïm, who - big surprise - is Valérie's ex in real life and also collaborated on the screenplay." (Filmleaf)
