Middle age crises in an original way
This was a funny movie, compared to most of french comedies. It had an original script, a good rhythm, a narrator, a relatively good actor’s direction,and despite its lightness, it was quite moving in the end. As usual with most of French films, the ending is not that elaborated. But in general I think it is worth seeing it for laughing a little bit and think about your own ghosts. The flight simulator was a good add-in, and gave the film a very original feature. Marion Cotillard’s was good as well, although she was not very present in the film. It’d preferable to develop a bit more their relationship… Ludo’s role is fantastic as well.
A French romantic movie that has many merits
Someone has put a wrong poster of the film by mistake. Can you please replace the poster with the real one. Here is a link to see how it looks like. www.rottentomatoes.com/m/ma-vie-en-lair/ The black-and-white poster has nothing to do with the movie.
At first when I decided to watch ‘Ma vie en l’air” I did not have high expectations but then it turn out that the movie was far more interesting than I thought. The movie follows the story of Yann Kerbec, an instructor for an airline company who uses flight simulators to evaluate pilots’ abilities to handle in extreme conditions. Ironically, Yann himself is afraid of flying. This becomes an issue when his girlfriend (considered to be the woman of his dreams) was offered an job in different country.
Compared to most French romcoms this is joyful and entertaining, worth seeing. The film provides a pleasing romantic story. Vincent Elbaz and Gilles Lellouche, playing childhood friends, are a fantastic duo. Even though the script may seem to be rather predictable, I enjoyed every minute of the film. If you are looking for a pleasant and emotive story with down-to-earth characters, funny and true to life situations, something rather different than an ordinary American romcom (but also gripping), that is the film for you. It would be a shame not to mention how pretty stunning Marion Cotillard was as Alice. She was probably in her late 20s when the movie was shot, however, she looks even younger. And so beautiful! I really enjoyed watching her as Vincent Elbaz’s lovebird. They make such a nice couple. Perhaps they were both rising stars of the French cinema at back then. The director Rémi Bezançon has an eye for the details. The senior pilot’ s story was touching too. Well done!
