Nuit D'Ivresse Details


Although the plot in this funny, well-acted romantic comedy is written by the numbers, the story entertains because of the talent of the two leads. Thierry Lhermitte plays Jacques Belin, a dashing television star who is on a bender after receiving an award for his courteous demeanor. Josiane Balasko portrays Frede, an ex-convict who runs into Jacques in a train station. Circumstances throw the two of them together for an evening immersed in alcohol, much to Jacques' later regret. He does not remember what happened the night before when he wakes up with a headache the size of Lyons, but Frede has no such problem, and that only means trouble. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
