The Queen of Hearts

In this musical take on everyday life, Adele is devastated after a painful breakup. Her attempt to recover leads to surprisingly funny results as she jumps from one lover to the next. To get over him, Adèle moves in with her cousin Rachel, who reluctantly takes her in, gets her a job and encourages her to date other men. "Writer-director Valérie Donzelli's style seems in many ways an amalgam of Jean-Luc Godard and Eric Rohmer, except that it's all 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, we learn, is Valérie's ex in real life and also collaborated on the screenplay."
