The trouble with you( Visual )

2 editions published in 2019 in French and English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the biggest audience hits of Cannes 2018 (where it premiered as the centrepiece of the Directors' Fortnight section), this sparkling new screwball comedy from French cinema's master of the genre Pierre Salvadori (Wild Target, Après Vous, Priceless) is an irresistible mix of laughs, action and romance. Set on the French Riviera, the wonderful Adèle Haenel (The Unknown Girl, BPM) plays detective Yvonne, the principled young widow of the local police chief who was killed in the line of duty. Each night she puts their young son to sleep with tales of his daring and bravery, so naturally Yvonne is horrified to learn that her husband was not the embodiment of virtue as she had been led to believe, but rather that an innocent man, Antoine (Pio Marmaï), has spent eight years falsely imprisoned as a result of his corruption
