Heartbreaker- a very original romantic comedy soon to hit the screens.
HEARTBREAKER PRODUCTION NOTES Few romantic comedies in the last decade have even come close to the gates of the rom-com hall of fame, let alone entered them. HEARTBREAKER has all the elements and more to become an all-time classic in its genre: originality, wit and above all, breath-taking romance. Taking a staggering 1.7 million admissions in its French opening weekend, the film marks director Pascal Chaumeil’s feature debut and stars the gorgeous paring of Vanessa Paradis and Romain Duris. Meet Alex (Duris). He’s charming, funny, effortlessly cool, and most importantly, irresistible to women. Alex offers a professional service; to break up relationships. In just a few weeks, for a fee equivalent to his reputation, he promises to transform any husband, fiancé or boyfriend into an ex. Hideouts, phone-tapping, fake identities, a devastating smile, anything goes when it comes to fulfilling his contract. Meet Juliette (Paradis). She’s a young, beautiful, free-spirited and independent heiress, with a passion for shopping, fine wine, and a word-perfect knowledge of Dirty Dancing. In ten days she’s due to marry the man of he dreams (Andrew Lincoln), much to her father’s disapproval. When Alex is hired to break up this seemingly perfect couple he is thrown into a actionfilled race against time, taking him through the sun-drenched streets of Paris to the fast cars and high fashion of Monaco, in his own hilarious seduction “mission impossible” that risks him being caught by his ruthless personal creditors, angry exes, and Juliette herself. But worst of all, will he discover to his own cost that when it comes to love, the perfect plan doesn’t exist?
