Anaïs In Love – Chicago Reader

Anaïs in love is as magnetic as its protagonist. From the start, Anaïs (Anaïs Demoustier) is messy and alternates from one stressful situation to another. Except that she does it with admirable ease, whether she’s explaining to her landlord why she’s behind with her rent, or when she’s late for a date with her boyfriend. By the time she awkwardly meets the much older man she wants to start an affair with, it seems that Anaïs is stepping dangerously close to the territory of the manic pixie dream girl. But filmmaker Charline Bourgeois-Tacquet never lets her get there. Instead, Bourgeois-Tacquet offers a much more charming character whose nuance becomes clearer as she falls in love with Emilie (Valeria Bruni Tedeschi), whose husband is the aforementioned man. Again, she is messy, but the film embraces it in a way that honors the character, giving her room to grow independently and with an authenticity that viewers will not be able to shake. 98 min.

Wide release on VOD and limited release in cinemas
