Writer-director Yvan Attal takes a funny, observant, evanescent approach to the mysterious of human desire in Happily Ever After, a bittersweet comedy about the battle of the married sexes. Starring Attal and real-life amour Charlotte Gainsbourg , Happy Ever After uncovers a web of marital deceit and sexual combustion connecting a handful of Parisian friends, spouses and lovers. Though to all appearances happily married parents, Vincent and Gabrielle both harbor secret doubts about their monogamy. Despairing of the cynicism of his hen-pecked married co-worker George, and envious of the joie de vivre of his swinging sing friend Fred, Vincent weighs the risks involved in both keeping himself satisfied and his marriage intact. Sensitive but independent Gabrielle, in turn, feels helpless over her partner's increasing evasiveness and is drawn to her own burgeoning fantasy life. But when she makes a surprising and powerful connection with a handsome stranger in a record store, Gabrielle stops speculating about Vincent's loyalty and begins to consider an affair of her own. Happily Ever After's able cast features Emmanuelle Seigner and memorable cameos by Anouk Aimee and director Claude Berri. Balancing realistic characters with bravura widescreen camerawork, and enlivened by a playful and smart pop soundtrack, Happily Ever After gives exuberant new life to the age old dilemmas surrounding love, marriage, and fidelity.
