Pyramide releases Caprice in 182 theatres
Caprice by Emmanuel Mouret

Ever since he started out, actor-director Emmanuel Mouret has been honing his highly personal style that has earned him a reputation as the French Woody Allen and the recognition of the major international festivals (Venus and Fleur and Change of Address [+see also:

at Locarno in 2011 and 2013) as well as a significant power to draw in actors for the very well-written roles that he offers them. His new film, Caprice [+see also:

, distributed today by Pyramide across 182 screens, is a fresh illustration of this, and the filmmaker shares the top of the bill wonderfully with the excellent (and surprising) Virginie Efira, Anaïs Demoustier and Laurent Stocker.

(The article continues below - Commercial information)

A delicate, funny and jazzy variation on the classic theme of romantic toing-and-froing, Caprice sees Emmanuel Mouret play a shy, clumsy character (a role that he has now mastered completely) struggling to choose between two women: a famous actress whom he reveres and whose partner he becomes through a kind of lucky miracle, and a young, invasive woman who continually forces her attentions upon him. All of this unfolds under the watchful eye of his best friend (who is more interested than he appears)... This emotional ballet swinging between the burlesque and the melancholy, and between levity and depth, is produced by Moby Dick Films, co-produced by Arte France Cinéma and sold abroad by Kinology.

Also hitting screens this Wednesday are Jauja [+see also:
