French Film Festival - The Trouble With You (En liberté!)

The Trouble With You - Synopsis

A sparkling new screwball comedy from French cinema’s master of the genre Pierre Salvadori (Wild Target, Après Vous, Priceless) is an outrageously funny ride with a rollicking wild side – an irresistible mix of laughs, action and romance.

Set on the French Riviera, the wonderful Adèle Haenel (The Unknown Girl, BPM) plays detective Yvonne, the principled young widow of the local police chief who was killed in the line of duty. Each night she puts their young son to sleep with tales of his daring and bravery,so naturally Yvonne is horrified to learn that her husband was not the embodiment of virtue as she had been led to believe, but rather that an innocent man, Antoine (Pio Marmaï), has spent eight years falsely imprisoned as a result of his corruption.

Yvonne decides to do everything she can to help return the hapless parolee to his regular life and devoted fiancé (a delightful, scene-stealing Audrey Tautou). Unfortunately, Antoine has trouble adjusting back to society, and soon blows a fuse that leads to an hilarious trail of destruction, where moral, social and romantic obligations are put to the test in a spectacular way.

En liberté! - Synopsis

Yvonne jeune inspectrice de police, découvre que son mari, le capitaine Santi, héros local tombé au combat, n’était pas le flic courageux et intègre qu’elle croyait mais un véritable ripou. Déterminée à réparer les torts commis par ce dernier, elle va croiser le chemin d’Antoine injustement incarcéré par Santi pendant huit longues années. Une rencontre inattendue et folle qui va dynamiter leurs vies à tous les deux.
