Actress Adèle Haenel takes a nimble slapstick turn as a dazed widow who discovers that her “heroic” husband was nothing more than a crooked cop, in Pierre Salvadori’s uproarious screwball comedy, The Trouble with You. A squeaky-clean flatfoot herself, our fearless heroine is determined to make amends for her late husband’s graft and corruption, launching a series of increasingly wacky events that soon spiral far out of control. Actor Pio Marmaï gives a particularly loopy, mercurial performance in this ultimately sweet, somewhat insane romantic farce that veers between over-the-top comic-book action film and exhilaratingly zany crime caper. A roller-coaster ride of a movie… and a barrel of laughs along the way!
A native of Tunisia, Pierre Salvadori studied literature and cinema studies at the Sorbonne, in Paris, before training as an actor. He wrote and directed his first feature, Wild Target, in 1993, which was followed by nine additional features, a TV movie and a series. Inspired by the work of the great Ernst Lubitsch, his films veer from screwball comedy (Priceless, COLCOA 2007) to film noir (The Sandmen, 2000) to dramedy (In the Courtyard, COLCOA 2014). Yet they all explore the themes of friendship and betrayal, truth and lies, seduction and devotion… and they pull no punches in their sharp observations of the society we live in. The Trouble with You will open theatrically in the U.S. following its presentation at COLCOA.
