LOLO

Julie Delpy writes, directs and stars in this stupendously funny comedy of a later-life love affair thwarted by an extremely possessive adult son. Delpy’s fourth film as director since 2 Days In Paris shows that she is among the best of today’s comic filmmakers, delivering constant laughs and tremendous characters.

Delpy plays the neurotic Parisian sophisticate and divorcee, Violette, who while on holiday finds new love with an IT boffin, Jean-René (comedy icon Dany Boon, Superchondriac – Festival 2015). When Jean-René joins her in Paris, all seems perfect – but for the insistent campaign of sabotage by Violette’s 19-year-old son, Lolo (a terrifically louche Vincent Lacoste, Eden – Festival 2015).

Also starring Karin Viard (Almost Friends – Festival 2015) as Violette’s happily brazen best friend Ariane, this brilliantly paced film is full of plausibly awkward situations and witty observations on family ties. Boon, himself a talented writer-performer-director, plays straight to Delpy’s hysterical hypochondriac, and the film features surprising cameos from the likes of Karl Lagerfeld and novelist Frédéric Beigbeder. Equal parts hilarious and honest; Lolo is a comedy highlight of the year.
