Alice, an attractive pharmacist in her late 30s, is still single, to the consternation of her Jewish family. She takes refuge in Woody Allen movies, and has long talks with a poster of the filmmaker, asking him for guidance. This witty, romantic Gallic comedy, the debut of director/writer Sophie Lellouche, is an homage to Allen’s classic "Play It Again, Sam.” In fact, Allen himself shows up in a small but key role!

In French and English with subtitles.


For this evening, please use Fenway Entrance.
