Fly Me to the Moon

In this French romantic comedy, Diane Kruger plays a successful dentist who’s afraid to tie the knot with her longtime boyfriend; no woman in her family has found true love until her second marriage, and this would be only her first. To solve the problem, she plots to marry and divorce a random stranger. Unluckily for her, he turns out to be an eccentric travel writer (Dany Boon, a popular comic actor best known in the States from Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s Micmacs) who gets them both stranded in the middle of Kenya just hours after they meet. Some of the narrative developments achieve the sweet illogic of a 30s screwball farce, while others are merely inane. Still, the players are always in high spirits, and director Pascal Chaumeil (Heartbreaker) keeps the action bright and bouncy; the slapstick’s well executed too. In subtitled French and Russian.
