Lolo

Julie Delpy writes, directs and stars in this satirical French comedy about forty-something workaholic Violette (Delpy), who finds romance while on a spa vacation - but whose new beau soon has doubts when he discovers Violette's unusual relationship with her 20-year-old son.

"On holiday in the south of France, anxious Parisian Violette (Delpy) and her best friend Ariane (Karin Viard) obsess about love and sex while, at the same time, ridiculing them mercilessly. When Violette meets awkward small-towner Jean-René (French comic Dany Boon), she first keeps him at arm's length. But there's no denying his charm. "I'm sick of smart-ass Parisian guys messing with my head," she realizes. And off they go. When she brings Jean-René back to Paris, things get more complicated. Violette's son, Lolo (Vincent Lacoste, also at the Festival in Parisienne), has gotten used to being the only man in his mother's life. He launches an effective stealth campaign against Jean-René, undermining his mother's lover at every turn." (Toronto International Film Festival)

What could have been a broad yet sweetly believable comic meditation on cross-cultural middle-aged romance [is dragged] down with flatly staged, sometimes downright infantile low-brow antics.

A high-concept comedy that's French actress-director Julie Delpy's most winningly mainstream concoction yet.
