Synopsis

Thirty-something Adele is devastated after a painful breakup. With no close friends or family, her distant cousin, Rachel, reluctantly takes her in and graciously attempts to salvage Adele's personal and professional lives. Rachel finds her a job and suggests that Adele sleep with other men to get over her heartbreak. Adele bounces from one lover to the next in search of her perfect companion but can't escape the visage of her ex. Finally, she recognizes the man who may just hold the answer to her broken heart.

AGATA AND THE STORM
Directed by Silvio Soldini
YEAR 3 FILM 7
A swirl of pop-art color, madcap magic, and the bittersweet call of life and love suddenly take the mature, ravishing, self-reliant Agata by storm. When Agata, the popular bookshop proprietor and dispenser of sunny wisdom in the form of books, is suddenly wooed by a man almost half her age, her electricity hits high-voltage. It even sends light bulbs bursting in her wake. Yet it is Agata's joy and 'explosive' magnetism in the face of life in all its irony that eventually offers the eye of the cyclone. There, all is supremely quiet and still, as Agata creates a haven of love and freedom to quell the storms of life's unfulfilled desires.

Angel - Customer Review
I loved this fun and lighthearted film. It is a testament to Jérémie Elkaïm's acting abilities that I did not realize he played four of the men. He did a great job altering his voice and mannerisms to fit each character. And I loved the idea of his playing each man to show how focused Adele was on her ex. Fun to watch.


Kevin Haag - Customer Review
I was so sad for Adele, her boyfriend was such a jerk. We don't really learn why he dumped her. What was the reason? Luckiky, she had at least one family member to go to for support. I had a hard time trying to figure out what was wrong with her - down deep inside. she seemed so lovely on the outside. THEN, the fun begins! I was hoping for Pierre to be her saviour. No, wait: maybe it would be Jacques to bring her out of her funk. And finally, Paul. Dear beautiful, sexy, freaky, twisted, perverted Paul. He was like an angel of salvation. And if you think you have this movie figured out so far, GET READY: The ending totally shocked me. I was so suprised, I wanted it to go on and on. Just a fantastic experience I will watch it again. Thank you!


Jeff in Seattle - Customer Review
Light-hearted and fell good? Well, the main character is weak and powerless to do anything after being dumped by her boyfriend. What follows is an odd series of events that left me gaping at hte sheer imagination of the story. Every man she meets turns out to look just like her ex-boyfriend. Eventually, all the men she meets accidentially (by fate?) meet each other in less than fortunate situations. The film also doesn't know wheather or not it is a musical (only two songs). At the end of the film, I came away perplexed.
