In Bed With Victoria / Victoria

Justine Triet, France, 2016, 97m
English and French with English subtitles

Victoria (Virginie Efira) is a hotshot lawyer with a disastrous personal life. Between juggling a demanding job, raising two kids, and fending off an ex-husband who’s slandering her on the Internet, she can barely be bothered with the hit-or-miss (mostly miss) online hookups she sets up. Around the time Victoria agrees to help her old friend Vincent (Melvil Poupaud) with a decidedly bizarre legal matter, she runs into a charming former client Sam (Vincent Lacoste). Now that a shot at real romance comes along, will the perpetually harried Victoria even recognize it? This refreshingly offbeat (how else to describe a film that features a trial in which the star witness is a Dalmatian?) farce is propelled by Efira’s irresistible performance as a heroine who’s raw, real, and complicated in ways that transcend the rom-com formula.

Saturday, March 4, 9:30pm (Q&A with Justine Triet)
Sunday, March 12, 3:30pm

REVIEW:

This is a slightly loopy movie, but fun.  It does raise some major questions about the rules of procedure in French courts.


Both Vincent Lacoste and Melvil Poupaud were seen in films last year at the RENDEZ-VOUS 2016.  Vincent Lacoste was featured in Julie Delpy’s LOLO, and Melvil Poupaud was in THE GREAT GAME.  We interviewed Melvil last year – the links are below.
