Product description

Product Description

Circus knife-thrower Gabor (Daniel Auteuil) dissuades Adèle (Vanessa Paradis) from committing suicide and takes her on as his partner, tying her to a board each night and hurling his knives at her. The act is an immediate success and the pair take off for a series of adventures across the Mediterranean. An unusual romantic comedy with memorable cinematography and performances from Auteuil and Paradis.

From the Back Cover

A girl on a bridge is preparing to take her own life. Adele (Vanessa Paradis) looks determined to jump but a passing stranger offers her an alternative ending. Gabor (Daniel Auteil) is a circus act on the search for an new assistant but is this where knife-throwers like him find their new targets or is this just love at first sight?

Adele takes a gamble on fate and enters Gabor's strange but exciting world. As a double act they breathe life into each other and rediscover good fortune. With Gabor's skill and Adele's stunning looks they take their act to the edge and are soon thrilling audiences across Europe.

Adele is in debt to Gabor for her new confidence in life and is sure it will help her find Mr. Right. However, the moment they are apart, luck deserts them and it is only now that they truly realize the effect they had on each other. This is a unique, enchanting romantic comedy that leaves a lasting impression.
