Editorial Reviews

In a frothy, sexy feature The Huffington Post called an effervescent delight, Alex (Romain Duris of The Beat That My Heart Skipped) is a romantic for hire. If your daughter or sister or friend is falling for the wrong man, Alex will get her to fall for him, watch her dump the loser...and then break her heart by walking away. She ll be sad but wiser and lucky to have avoided a bad relationship. It s a highly profitable business with one rule: don t fall in love. When Alex is hired to woo Juliette (Vanessa Paradis of Girl On The Bridge), he breaks her heart...and his own rule. Starring two of the most beautiful actors in the world, Heartbreaker is the perfect date movie with a sweetly hilarious, Dirty Dancing-inspired finale that you ll never forget.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine French Fluff November 16, 2010
Format:DVD
HEARTBREAKER ('L'ARNACOEUR') is a delightful bit of French fluff, created as only the French know how. There are 'quotes' from certain films and songs that mix the two main characters together and add to the meringue of the farce. Based on a light story by Laurent Zeitoun, Jeremy Doner, and Yhan Gromb and directed with a fine sense of comic timing by Pascal Chaumeil, this is one of those examples of the farces the French do so well.

Alex Lipp (Romain Duris), his sister Mélanie (Julie Ferrier) and her husband Marc (François Damiens) run a little business: they coordinate efforts to breakup undesired relationships for pay. After a few examples of how the trio works its magic, an assignment takes them to Monaco where they are hired to stop the marriage between Juliette Van Der Becq (Vanessa Paradis) and her wealthy humanitarian fiancé Jonathan Alcott (Andrew Lincoln) - in 10 days time! Alex is avoiding previous client debts represented by a bodyguard Goran (Jean-Marie Paris) but plunges into the formula courtship destruction mode with Juliette; the difference this time is that Juliette seems happily ensconced in the marriage plans and has little time for Alex's plans. But of course through the period of time allotted, Juliette finds qualities in Alex that are missing from her 'perfect' fiancé and Alex breaks his cardinal rule and falls in love with his marked client Juliette. The manner in which the story is resolved is clever and entertaining and heartwarming.

This may not be a great movie but it is a well-acted refreshing little romp to cleanse the palette! In French and English with subtitles. Grady Harp, November 10

Format:DVD
There have been a lot of romantic comedies about prostitutes and gigolos, but "Heartbreaker" (L'arnacoeur) puts a new twist on the lover-for-hire theme. Alex (Romain Duris) specializes in breaking up relationships. With the aid of his sister Mélanie (Julie Ferrier) and brother-in-law Marc (François Damiers), Alex saves women from unhappy relationships by seducing the ladies away from their beaus. He's a pro. And he owes people money. So, when a rich flower magnate hires him to break up his daughter Juliette's (Vanessa Paradis) engagement to a very nice, affluent British man (Andrew Lincoln), Alex accepts. But this case presents some problems: The couple are genuinely happy and well-suited. And Alex is smitten with Juliette.

Most of the movie takes place in Monte Carlo, where the bride is planning her wedding and Alex is attempting to be a convincing bodyguard. Since Juliette is being manipulated, she is the straight man. Her dilemma seems real. Many of the laugh-out-loud moments are thanks to the antics of Mélanie and Marc. Their little team is much too high-tech for such a ramshackle operation, but that's the kind of suspension of disbelief that comedies can get away with. I think there should be a rule that romantic comedies not run longer than 90 minutes, and this one runs 105, but it's fun and makes good use of the new twist on an old theme. The only bonus features on the DVD (MPI 2011) are a trailer (2 ½ min) and a TV spot (30 sec). Subtitles are available in English SDH, English, and Spanish.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Man Who Breaks Hearts...Even His Own January 26, 2011
Format:DVD
Alex Lippi (Romain Duris) has an odd occupation. He gets paid to break up relationships. Assisted by his sister Melanie (Julie Ferrier) and her husband Marc (Francois Damiens). Together, they construct elaborate schemes aimed toward getting the women to recognize their own doubts about their relationships.

The team employ an intricate strategy, gathering extensive intelligence on their targets before they put their plans into action. There are also rules. The team will not break up a happy couple. This presents a problem when Alex agrees to take up a challenge named Juliette (Vanessa Paradis). Heavily in debt and faced with a moral dilemma, Alex complicates matters by falling in love with his target.

The film had great dialogue and well developed characters. The comedy was subtle, but fresh. While the plot was predictable, I enjoyed watching it develop. The ridiculous schemes that this team hatches makes for some interesting interactions and sets the foundation for some great situational comedy. It is a light, fun and unique story.

While it is predictable at times, the situations offer some unique opportunities for fresh humor. Strong dialogue, good character development and a skilled cast give life to an excellent screenplay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romain Duris Peut Bien Sur Etre A ArnaCouer June 29, 2013
By Ryan
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is my all time favorite Romain Duris movie and this is also my all time favorite French comedy ever made! My favorite thing about the DVD release is the audio quality because everytime when a rock and roll song or rap song would come on, it would sound like a radio is on with really lound speakers that are turned all the way up! My two favorite songs throughout the whole the film is America by K'naan and The Joker by The Steve Miller Band!

The whole point of the film is this guy Alex Lippi (Romain Duris) who breaks up bad relationships. So, he finds this couple (Vanessa Paradis, Andrew Lincoln) that are about to get married 10 days and he turns out to be the bodyguard for Juliette (Vanessa Paradis) and they start to like each other before Alex breaks them up!

This is a really good movie I mean REALLY, REALLY good movie for everyone but it's not rated when it should be rated PG-13 for langauge but the langauge is in the subtitles but the langauge is not strong!

When will IFC pictures put "Heartbreaker" on bluray in America?
