Rosalie Blum

Comedy Romance


 

When Vincent, a lonely hairdresser, has a chance encounter with Rosalie, who is oddly familiar, he is intrigued and starts to follow her everywhere.

The most entertaining element of this movie is the storyline. That's surprising seeing as the film is based on a graphic novel, an unlikely source for a captivating plot. The tale is told from three different perspectives; a little more is revealed with each telling, creating a coherent whole - the construction of the narrative is ingenious. Add to that characters who are as awkward as they are delightful and we are treated to a quirky adventure. Rosalie blooms.
