Coup De Chance
Coup De Chance
Two young people's bond leads to marital infidelity and ultimately crime.
Fanny (Lou de Laâge) and Jean (Melvil Poupaud) have everything, they are the ideal couple: fulfilled in their professional lives, they live in a magnificent apartment in the high-end districts of Paris and seem to be as in love as the first day they met. But when Fanny crosses, by chance, Alain (Niels Schneider), a former high school friend, she is immediately hooked. They see each other again, and, very quickly, get closer and closer...
Coup de Chance (Stroke of Luck) is scheduled to screen out of competition in August as part of Venice Film Festival and is Woody Allen's first film in the French language.
The film is being touted as a ‘sensational’ contemporary romantic thriller, the spiritual successor to Woody Allen's wonderful Match Point as it “charts the story of two young people whose bond leads to marital infidelity and ultimately crime.”
