Fabbo Friday and a Fab and Funny French Film

My lovely neighbour and friend lent me the French movie I Do and this week was the perfect week for watching it. If you enjoy a funny, light romantic film then I highly recommend it. I'd had a pretty dismal week but I managed to put my woes behind me and laugh out loud a few times.
Alain Chabat plays Luis Costa, a happily confirmed bachelor who lives in an immaculate apartment and works as a 'nose' for a perfume company. His five sisters and interfering mother are trying to marry him off. Enter Emma played by Charlotte Gainsbourg whom Luis pays to be the perfect partner that his family will all fall in love with and then dump him at the altar, leaving him heart-broken so his family will leave him alone. The cunning plan backfires when his family fall in love with Emma too much and then he is forced to change his plan, hiring Emma to become the girlfriend from hell for the benefit of his family.
It's a lovely escapist film and Charlotte looks incredibly elegant, slim and stunning. But what would you expect with her parents? I do love Serge and Jane Birkin sooo much and have happy memories of visiting Serge's grave in Paris and seeing all the funny notes, cigarette butts,, metro tickets and quirky toys left for him. With a gene pool like that, Charlotte had to be exceptional.
Enjoy your weekend. Hope it is filled with lots of laughter and inspiration. Thank you for visiting me. xx
