Slight but engaging on many levels, Rosalie Blum is the directorial debut of screenwriter Julien Rappeneau.
Adapted from the French graphic novels, it is ostensibly the story of loneliness as hairdresser Vincent Machot (a hound-dog Kyan Khojandi – All Three of Us, Chinese Puzzle) becomes so obsessed with Rosalie Blum (the charismatic Noemie Lvovsky – Camille Rewinds, Farewell My Queen) he starts to follow her. But Rosalie is on to him – and arranges for her niece, Aude, to follow him.
Told from three different points of view, Rosalie Blum is a combination of mystery, drama, tragedy and romantic comedy. Each perspective reveals a little more of the storyline, sometimes obvious, sometimes unexpected.
