Pascal Chaumeil’s Heartbreaker (“L’Arnacoeur”), a romantic comedy starring Romain Duris and Vanessa Paradis is to open the for the 14th Annual City of Lights, City of Angels (COL•COA) Film Festival – 52 French films (32 features, 20 shorts) including four international and nine US and North American premieres – Los Angeles April 19-25.
Heartbreaker is an action-packed romantic comedy, led by actress-singer Vanessa Paradis (Girl on the Bridge, The Key) and art house heartthrob Romain Duris (The Beat That My Heart Skipped, Paris (COL•COA 2008), Russian Dolls). Duris is Alex, a professional Don Juan who makes a living breaking up couples with his sister Mélanie (Julie Ferrier, MicMacs). Because business is slow, they go against their principles to break up only unhappy couples and agree to work for M. Van Der Bercq. Alex has one week to stop Van Der Bercq’s daughter Juliette (Vanessa Paradis) from marrying the man she is madly in love with. This questionable mission becomes hazardous for Alex, as he enters the world of the beautiful, self-assured and independent Juliette and her seemingly perfect boyfriend, Jonathan.
