Matthew Modine plays a bohemian, artist-architect(he's actually a painter in real life), divorcee-dad, who just can't get over his ex. A floor below him, lives a driven, french woman, business developer who wants him out so she can live in peace and add on to her place.
He's a bit of a dork, unruly, irresponsible but passionate on principles. She and her equally uptight fiance are major up and comers, organized and planned for every step of the future. It becomes a battle of noncongruences between the neighbors in the worse and funniest ways. That is until they realize how truly unhappy they both are in their separate, weird worlds.
I like the actors- both in their late 40's; her fiance talks about having kids- better hurry up! If you like younger stars in RC's, seek another flick. The story's fun, the ending satisfying. I can live with middle age romances because, well, that's me! Minimum language, no sex, no nudity, but intended for adults.
The unexpected moments are sometimes really funny; especially the dance sequence by Christine, the bossy, controlling woman, played by Michèle Laroque, who wants Jeff out of his apartment.
The movie gets off to a rather slow start, but picks up the pace and eventually turns into a movie worth watching, at least once.
This was interesting and basically enjoyable, though it follows the age old Harlequin Romance story formula (ie they hate each other, but due to living proximity are forced to interact - and somehow one day they discover they actually like each other...there's a spark of romance and possibility.)
The lead female is not an actress I'm familiar with, but she was pretty good and I enjoyed her accent. As far as other reviewers suggesting she was too old for the pairing to be reasonable - I would have to wonder how young she believes the male actors to be in this. It was entirely age appropriate as far as her with the men - BUT, perhaps not for the fiancee's wanting/expecting her to have 3 kids as they'd be starting out late. Doable, but I would've just crossed that out of the script I think. At any rate, it matters little.
Overall it was pleasantly charming. If you're in the mood for that kind of story - see it. :-)
