My Worst Nightmare (Mon Pire Cauchemard) by Anne Fontaine, 2011 (NR)

With Isabelle Huppert (The Piano Teacher, Ma Mere, Amour, Dead Man Down, White Material), Benoit Poelvoorde (Asterix at the Olympic Games), André Dussollier, Virginie Efira, Corentin Devroey, Donatien Suner, Aurélien Recoing (Blue Is the Warmest Color - La Vie d'Adèle), Eric Berger, Philippe Magnan (L'affaire Farewell), Bruno Podalydès (Granny's Funeral - Adieu Berthe)
From the director of Adore - Perfect Mothers

François and Agathe have it all, but their marriage needs help. Enter Patrick, an uncouth contractor, who does more than spruce up the house. He inspires new zest in both François and Agathe's lives -- just not with each other.

Isabelle Huppert is an amazing actress, and plays drama perfectly. But... Put her in a comedy, and she radiates, she is really funny. Benoit Poelvoorde is kind of the loud funny, but thank god he is balanced by Huppert, and the combination flows. Dussolier always plays perfectly the confused guy, so he was The One for the role. It works. Anne Fontaine manages to make me laugh out loud, which is not so easy, through and through. Priceless.
