The French Embassy and the Alliance Française de Kotte in Colombo in collaboration with the INSTITUT FRANÇAIS will present the film Rosalie Blum by Julien Rappeneau on Sunday the 15th October at 3:30pm.
Based on the award-winning series of graphic novels by Camille Jourdy, Julien Rappeneau’s enchanting directorial debut Rosalie Blum is a warm comedy about a random encounter that has unexpected and far-reaching consequences.
Vincent is a hairdresser, like his father before him. Life rotates around work, his overbearing mother who lives in the apartment upstairs, and a womanising cousin constantly trying to set him up. But one morning Vincent experiences a powerful déjà-vu when he meets the gaze of a grocery store clerk, Rosalie Blum. Intrigued by this mysterious woman, he begins following her…
With its themes of fraternity, love and the need for human connection, Rosalie Blum is a joy to watch, a feel-good movie.
