Treachery on the Côte d’Azur
Let’s take a little trip to Monaco, Saint-Raphaël and Cap d’Ail with Pascal Chaumeil’s film “Heartbreaker” (2010). Alex Lippi (played by Romain Duris) makes a living breaking up couples. He is hired by the father of a rich heiress to ruin her upcoming wedding. But time is running out: Lippi only has 10 days to seduce Juliette Van Der Beck (Vanessa Paradis). After getting the low-down on her little foibles he poses as her bodyguard and goes into overdrive: Roquefort cheese for breakfast, slow songs by George Michael and dance moves from Dirty Dancing. Hilarious.
