Description: The ways of love are often difficult to fathom, but the love of a woman for the man who kicked her boyfriend's butt over unpaid debts is a new avenue of romance explored in this French comedy-drama. Fred (Lou Doillon) is a woman in her early twenties who is dating Francois (Camille Clavel), a young man who has made the serious mistake of getting behind in his payments to his drug dealer, Alex (Guillaume Saurrel). One day, Alex decides things have gone too far, and he arrives at Francois and Fred's place to beat him up. For some reason, Fred enjoys watching Alex slap her boyfriend around, and she quickly finds herself infatuated with Alex. Seeing that Fred is already involved with Francois, she feels it might seem unseemly to approach him directly, so instead she fixes Alex up with her close friend Sylvia (Caroline Ducey), and the two couples spend the evening together as Fred puts her matchmaking skills to the test. Lou Doillon, who plays Fred, is the daughter of Carrement a L'ouest's director Jacques Doillon; her mother is noted singer and actress Jane Birkin.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
