The Queen of Hearts
| 84 min
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)
