About this item
Writer-director Yvan Attal ("My Wife Is An Actress") takes a "funny, observant, evanescent approach to the mysterious of human desire" (Jamie Bernard, New York Daily News) in "Happily Ever After", a bittersweet comedy about the battle of the married sexes. Starring Attal and real-life amour Charlotte Gainsbourg ("21 Grams"), "Happily Ever After" uncovers a web of marital deceit and sexual combustion connecting a handful of Parisian friends, spouses and lovers. Though to all appearances happily married parents, Vincent and Gabrielle (Attal and Gainsbourg) both harbor secret doubts about their monogamy. Despairing of the cynicism of his hen-pecked married co-worker George (Alain Chabat), and envious of the joie de vivre of his swinging sing friend Fred (Alain Cohen), Vincent weighs the risks involved in both keeping himself satisfied and his marriage intact. Sensitive but independent Gabrielle, in turn, feels helpless over her partner's increasing evasiveness and is drawn to her own burgeoning fantasy life. But when she makes a surprising and powerful connection with a handsome stranger in a record store ("Yes...that's Johnny Depp!" - Paul Sherman, Boston Herald), Gabrielle stops speculating about Vincent's loyalty and begins to consider an affair of her own. "Happily Ever After's" able cast features Emmanuelle Seigner ("Bitter Moon") and memorable cameos by Anouk Aimee ("A Man And A Woman") and director Claude Berri. Balancing realistic characters with bravura widescreen camerawork, and enlivened by a playful and smart pop soundtrack, "Happily Ever After" gives exuberant new life to the age old dilemmas surrounding love, marriage, and fidelity.
