CGiii Comment

Rude! Everyone is so rude and wound up...and, dumped.

The daftness is centred around one fantastic comedic performance by Baptiste Carrion-Weiss...played strictly not for laughs - yet it is hysterically awkward.

The music will make you dance, the film will leave you with a great big smile smeared across your face. Loved it.


The(ir) Blurb...

Romain, in his thirties, has just been dumped by his boyfriend. Lonely and romantic, he tries a dating app and will make two surprising encounters in a two-star hotel.

Romain, un homme romantique qui croit profondément à l’amour sincère s’aventure sur un site de rencontres et malgré ses a priori, il ne sera pas déçu.
