A feel-good delight! Calamy, unleashed, offers a very funny and engaging performance.

- Le Parisien

After the smash-hit international success of Antoinette in the Cévennes, writer/director Caroline Vignal and the fabulous Laure Calamy reunite for an hilarious and provocative comedy about reignited desire in the modern age.

“They’re not”. This is how Iris (Calamy) quietly answers her chiropractor when asked how things are going with her husband (Vincent Elbaz). The words slip from her mouth like an unformed realisation: how long has it been since they last made love? Yet everything else is great: the couple love each other, they have two happy daughters, she runs a successful medical practice and has the best friends one could hope for...

But soon Iris will be turning 50. It is a stranger who whispers the seed of an idea: “Take a lover”. So, she dares open Pandora’s box, and hesitantly registers herself on a dating app. Immediately, men start to appear, as if it were raining…

So begins this cheeky, joyous and conversation-starting delight, in which Calamy completes her transformation from quirky character actress into unadulterated comedic star. Bound to be one of the biggest hits of this year’s Festival, log in and book early for Iris and the Men.
