Actor, writer and now director, Pierre-Loup Rajot’s romantic comedy, French Affairs, will be making its domestic DVD debut courtesy of Cinema Libre on Dec. 16.
When does the therapist need therapy? That’s the question at the forefront — with lots and lots of complications — in French Affairs.
Do you suppose that time comes when she, Astrid (Maria Caldera — My Stars), the therapist in this case, starts bedding the clientele (Eric Bonicatto)? Does it come when her secret is unveiled to her son (Yoann Denaive — Opium), who, as luck wouldn’t have it, crosses path with the wife, Céline (Céline Rajot), and reveals what nasty things dear old mom has been up to?
If this little sexual intrigue seems complicated, we are only getting started. Throw in Céline’s past (ooo la la la), mother-son issues and a man who needed therapy, but got a whole lot more … and will now likely need more professional help. Oh those French!!!
Presented in French with English subtitles.
