The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window and Disappeared by Felix Herngren is based on an international bestseller of the same name, which has sold more than six million copies worldwide.

Described as “a start-to-finish rocket-speed riot ” by Colin Covert of the MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE and “a quirky comic odyssey with a winningly off-kilter sense of humor” by Charles Bramesco of THE DISSOLVE, THE 100-YEAR-OLD MAN WHO CLIMBED OUT THE WINDOW AND DISAPPEARED is a sheer delight—an irresistible, madcap adventure about an ordinary man who can’t help but to stumble into one extraordinary circumstance after another!

The Names of Love on DVD October 18th

 

The Names of Love will be available on DVD, Video on Demand and Digital Download On October 18th by Music Box Films

 
Baya is a VERY eccentric girl who sleeps with “right-winged” politicians in order to get them to support her political causes.  She takes the slogan “make love, not war” and runs with it……literally! She seems pretty ok with this…..that is until she meets Arthur Martin, a middle-aged scientist with tech saavy Jewish parents,whose at a crossroads in life.

Sparks fly between Baya and Arthur as they have deep conversation about everything from French politics, Jewish and Arabic stereotypes, and French culture.

The Names of Loves has been deemed “Wildly Funny’ by The New York Times, and  The Wall Street Journal raved “A sharp-witted sometimes surreal comedy”, while The Hollywood Reporter hailed, “A delightful, sexy, and often audacious crowd pleaser.”

Although I’m not a big fan of romantic comedies, The Names of Love had me laughing out loud and left me feeling that Sara Forestier deserved to win a Cesar Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of Baya Benmahmoud. Sara Forestier and Jacques Gamblin play off each other well, and it shows all throughout the film.
