THE MOVIE OF THE DAY

Lend me your hand was born in 2006, from an original idea by Alain Chabat five years earlier, and became one of the most profitable French romantic comedies of the last fifteen years with no less than 3.7 million admissions.

If the starting point may seem cynical (a man decides to “rent” a woman to pass as his future wife…), the film gradually moves away from pure comedy to give way to a refreshing romantic dimension.

The mildly vulgar and uninhibited humor of Alain Chabat mixes with the unexpected comedic potential of a Charlotte Gainsbourg who has a field day when it comes to profanity. They thus form an irresistible duo, served by the staging of Éric Lartigau, who had already rubbed shoulders with the comic universe of Kad and O for But, who killed Pamela Rose? and A ticket to space.
