Nathalie has what every woman wants – youth, beauty and a blissful marriage – but when her husband dies unexpectedly, her whole world comes crashing down. Desperate to block out her emotions, her life becomes work-obsessed. That’s until she plants a whimsical kiss on her co-worker Markus, a nerdy, jumper-loving Swede. Her friends think she’s mad, but for Nathalie, a relationship of opposites turns out to be every bit as romantic as the last.
While Tautou knows how to restate her claim as the queen of French romantic comedies, her co-star Francois Damiens is quite the goofy charmer. It’s an adorable little romance, teeming with emotion, and scattered with unexpected bursts of passion.
