LOVE AT SECOND SIGHT MON INCONNUE
AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE

ROMANTIC COMEDY / FRANCE / 2019 / 118 MINS / M

Boy meets girl, boy marries girl, boy wakes up in a parallel universe where he never met girl – Love at  Second Sight is not your usual romantic comedy! Directed and co-written by Hugo Gélin (AF FFF18, Two Is a Family), a dash of science fiction sparks things up in this highly endearing tale of love lost and found – or is it love found and lost?

All seems perfect for Raphaël Ramisse (François Civil, AF FFF19, Who You Think I Am; AF FFF18, Back to Burgundy) and his wife Olivia (Joséphine Japy, AF FFF15, Breathe) who have been married for 10 years. High-school sweethearts and soulmates from the beginning, Raphaël flourishes as a successful author, largely due to Olivia’s unwavering support which sees her own ambitions put on hold to help him.

Waking up in a parallel universe, however, Olivia is nowhere to be seen, and Raphaël’s professional achievements have vanished. Without Olivia, his life is empty but winning her back proves harder than he ever could have imagined when he realises she doesn’t even know who he is. 

Raphaël’s battle to recapture his wife’s affection is a love letter to Groundhog Day director Harold Ramis, who Gélin homages through the character’s surname, “Ramisse”. But, as a love letter to quirky genre-bending romcoms, Gélin adds his own spice, which posits Love at Second Sight as a Festival favourite.

French and English with English subtitles.
