Love Is in the Air France 2013 – 96min.
Amour & turbulences
A partying lawyer meets his ex in a plane and tries to get her back.
Antoine (Nicoals Bedos) and Julie (Ludivine Sagnier) broke up three years ago. Then chance puts them beside each other on a plane from New York to Paris. Antoine, a party-hound lawyer, has seven hours to plead his case to her and promise he will from now on always be faithful. But, Julie, who's supposed to be getting married in two days, has been burnt once already and throws at him all the good reasons why this last attempt at seduction won't work. Under the rapt attention of other passengers, who are thrilled by the live soap opera happening in front of them, Antoine has only one chance to prove his powers of persuasion, a plea that could change the course of both their lives...
Pimped by an array of flash-backs to scenes back on earth, this rom-com takes off thanks to scenes in which the annoying seducer, played by Nicolas Bedos, proves he has both the gift of gab as well as a lot of chutzpah. Although slightly over-sweet, it's an entertaining trip in good company.
