ANAÏS IN LOVE
LES AMOURS D’ANAÏS

ROMANCE, ROMANTIC COMEDY / FRANCE / 2021 / 98 MIN / EXEMPT

Anaïs in Love is a sensual, funny and endearing French romantic comedy. Young Anais (Anaïs Demoustier, Alice and the Mayor, AF FFF20) begins an affair with a much older man (Denis Podalydès, Sorry Angel, AF FFF19) but finds herself falling for his wife (Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, Paris etc, AF FFF18). This ménage à trois elegantly navigates fantasy, sensuality and melancholy in a film that grows in intensity with each passing minute.

Reminiscent of an Eric Rohmer or Greta Gerwig film, composer Nicolas Piovani takes the audience on a nostalgic journey from Paris to Normandy, the score of violin and cello compositions complimenting this polished yet slightly old-fashioned exploration of romance. Comic situations abound in Charline Bourgeois-Tacquet’s sparkling debut feature, with writing that draws sincere and captivating performances from Podalydès as a man out of his depth and Tedeschi as a woman on the edge of awakening.

Selected for Cannes Critics’ Week, Anaïs in Love paints a wacky but sensitive portrait of an indecisive young woman, a devilishly seductive tale in which the laws of desire and the quest for identity are intertwined.
