Looking for Hortense (Cherchez Hortense)


A bitter-sweet tale of a marriage on the rocks. A Parisian couple and their son. A professor of Chinese culture can’t quite bring himself to tell his wife he’s been unable to get his pompous father to intervene on behalf of a relative of hers. In seeking to intervene, his life enters a downward spiral. True love falters.

Subtly observed and very well acted.

  • What a tangled web we weave….
  • Very French Full of Humanity (not sure what film I was watching then?)
  • Very absorbing although why two very young attractive women  were attracted to Damien I cant imagine
  • Simple story but also very involved
  • Lovely heart warming film
  • Typically French
