Plot – Spoilers:
Max appears to be in the prime of his life. His career is taking off, he’s getting married soon to his boss’s sister and the boss thinks he’s hot shit. While meeting with clients at a cafe, he fleetingly sees an ex whom he broke up with in odd circumstances. Seeing her brings a flood of memories and he becomes obsessed with finding her, even canceling his business trip to Japan.

L’appartement veers sometimes into romcom territory and is even a bit silly at times. It is however an important film in modern French cinema for its style and noirish touches.

L’appartement was remade in English as Wicker Park.

    Not acting at all? Cassel and Bellucci have such strong chemistry between them than transpires to the screen trough their private lives imo
