2013 | France | Antonin Peretjatko | ★★★★
Antonin Peretjatko's cheaply but lovingly crafted The Rendez-Vous of Déjà-Vu is a formally playful, thematically irreverent French rom-com, packed with hilarious political satire, wonderful sight gags, and memorablly deadpan performances.
"Hector meets Truquette on Bastille Day and becomes obsessed with seducing her. The plan is to get her to the seaside pronto. Pator is not complaining, especially if her friend Charlotte comes along for the ride. So off they go, down the country roads of a broke and broken France. Times are hard ! Suddenly the government cancels a month of summer. Everyone back to work! A wad of cash and two gun shots later, the group splits in two like France itself. But careering away from work in no way daunts the remaining trio, dead set on relocating the Bastille Girl and reveling in an endless summer." TMDb
