Up for Love Trailer

"She's with me now, so move on." This one is for all the short guys out there. This film already hit theaters in France and the UK earlier in the summer, but I just came across this trailer now and it's quirky and – yes – quite charming. The film is titled (in English) Up for Love, which is a fun title because it's about a beautiful women who meets a guy she likes but it turns out he's only 4'6" tall. She has to fight against the "prejudices of society and her own fears" in this very French romantic comedy. Jean Dujardin stars as the lil' guy, named Alexandre, and Virginie Efira stars as Diane. The cast includes Cédric Kahn, Stéphanie Papanian, César Domboy and Edmonde Franchi. This is definitely a bit cheesy, I will admit, but it still looks fun. In real life, Jean Dujardin is 6' tall, so there must be some digital trickery going on. Take a look.

Here's the new trailer (+ two posters) for Laurent Tirard's Up for Love, found right on YouTube:

Diane is a well-known lawyer, divorced for three years. She loses her mobile telephone and receives a call from the person who finds it. That person is Alexandre, a charming man and the perfect gentleman. They make a connection over the phone and agree to meet up the following day. But when Alexandre arrives, there's a surprise in store when Diane discovers he is only 4'6" tall. From that moment on, Diane tries to overcome the prejudices of society and her own fears to experience the best time of her life… Up for Love, originally Un homme à la hauteur, is directed by French filmmaker Laurent Tirard, of Little Nicholas, The Story of My Life and Astérix and Obélix: God Save Britannia previously. The screenplay is written by Laurent Tirard & Grégoire Vigneron, remaking a 2013 Spanish film called Corazón de león about the same story. The film played at the Seattle Film Festival but doesn't actually have a US release date yet. Interested?

  • True love can overcome these prejudice of course. But it's hard for a woman to love a man who is shorter than her. I am just repeating what many women have told me. so don't shoot.
    • That's exactly what this film is about, overcoming that social stigma...

      Unless they are rich and famous movie stars a la Tom Cruise, Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro or Dustin Hoffman. A lot of women didn't seem to have much a problem with them...or with Jack Nicholson either for that matter, who bedded a lot of women who were no doubt much taller than him. Not shooting, tarek, just sayin'
      • ;D Women are venal creatures. Save few.
        • Bo
 can't say I agree with you here, tarek. Sorry man. However...most human beings are, so......
          • Come on Bo. I thought you have a lot of experience in life... ;D Women have a serious issue with money. Maybe it's a need to feel secure. Probably.

            I do have a lot of experience in life, tarek, however they have not led me to agreeing with these assessments you have of women. Sorry, bud, but my experiences working in sobriety/recovery with young men shows me that they are pretty crazy and deluded to the max, so women can't be that Actually, I know a lot of women in recovery too and they have their fare share of problems. It's human beings, tarek. Not just women...human beings...they are crazy, dysfunctional and violent creatures who have 'missed the mark' on how to live their lives. Rant
    This looks cute and quirky. I kind of get a SHALLOW HAL vibe from it.
