Fifth about The Seventh

Wedding Unplanned (Jour J)

Wedding Unplanned: Reem Kherici’s romantic comedy is mildly entertaining, even if it is particularly silly and vacuous. The main character (in a luminous performance by the director Kherici herself), a complicated woman who is also very much alive, is deserving of a better film surrounding her. The primary issue is that her love interest, played with some airhead charm by Nicolas Duvauchelle, is rather dull and a better match to his own fiancée (Julia Piaton has a few moments as the superficial and unsympathetic woman). The excessively colorful supporting characters is another evidence the film is more focused on the second part of rom-com. The film is very well-done, navigating a number of beautiful locations captured with a bright, attractive pallette.
