Jeanne and the Perfect Guy ★★ Jeanne et le Garcon Formidable 1998

Jeanne (Ledoyen) is a hopeless romantic looking for her perfect love and having a lot of sex as she “auditions” her would-be Romeos. Then she meets Olivier (Demy) in the subway and decides he's the one. Only Olivier tells Jeanne that he has AIDS. Oh yeah, and it's a musical, with everyone breaking into song and dancing through the Parisian streets. It's gawky romanticism is strangely appealing and Ledoyen has a lot of charisma. French with subtitles. 98m/C VHS, DVD . FR Virginie Ledoyen, Mathieu Demy, Frederic Gorny, Jacques Bonnaffe, Valerie Bonneton; D: Olivier Ducastel, Jacques Martineau; W: Olivier Ducastel, Jacques Martineau; C: Mathieu Poirot-Delpech; M: Philippe Miller.
