Director: Laurent Tirard.

Starring: Jean Dujardin, Virginie Efira. France 2016. 98 mins. French with English subtitles.

Successful lawyer Diane Duchêne (Efira) is dismayed when she loses her mobile phone, but relieved to receive a call from a stranger named Alexandre (Dujardin, The Artist), who claims to have found it. Even better, he sounds utterly charming, and having been dateless for far too long, she’s delighted to arrange to meet him and get her phone back the following day. However, in writer-director Laurent Tirard’s sharply observed romantic comedy – based on the award-winning Argentine original Corazón De León – her excitement is somewhat tarnished when Alexandre turns up and proves to be of, ahem, diminutive stature. Tirard, whose way with droll humour was exemplified in 2007’s Molière, uses this to address the prejudices that can hamper relationships between short men and tall women.

Contains infrequent strong language and moderate sex references.
