Monsieur & Madame Adelman
Comedy • 2h 0m
Directed by Nicolas Bedos • Drama • With Nicolas Bedos, Doria Tillier • 2017 • 120 minutes
The decades-spanning tumultuous romance of a quintessentially French couple is chronicled in the thought-provoking and scathingly funny MONSIEUR & MADAME ADELMAN. Told in flashback from the early 1970s forward, this epic love-hate relationship begins as angst-ridden writer Victor meets Sarah, a brilliant doctoral student who fall head-over-heels.
A complicated courtship and eventual marital discord ensue, as the egocentric Victor becomes a literary superstar and the enigmatic Sarah - his muse and steadfast source of strength - lingers in the shadows. Intimately detailing the intricacies of a lifetime of shared highs and lows, this story of passion, betrayal, and tragedy and unexpected twists of fate is co-written by the film's two stars, Nicolas Bedos and his partner Doria Tillier.
“A twisty-turvy romp... the final reveal gloriously pulls the rug out.” —France Today
