In this musical take on everyday life, Adele is devastated after a painful breakup. Her distant cousin, Rachel, finds her a job and suggests that Adele sleep with other men to get over her heartbreak. The search begins, but Adele can’t escape the visage of her former lover….
A quirky and charming Locarno gem from French actress Valérie Donzelli, who made her directorial debut with this imaginative musical rom-com (one actor plays every love interest!) that dances on the doorstep of Jacques Demy.
