For the first time Alice (Alice Pol) rendered Antoine (Jean Dujardin) speechless when she asked him to get married. Now on the phone she asked about it again. All Antoine could say, “Its all I think about.” Just as he puts the phone down there was a frantic knock on his hotel room door. It was the ambassador’s wife Anna (Elsa Zylberstein), crying. “My husband and I had a fight. He kicked me out of the house. He said I couldn’t stop staring at you.” Over the dinner reception they disagreed about everything. He often laughed at her notions of mysticism, unity with the universe, her fascination for Indian religion, philosophy. Antoine couldn’t explain it to himself, no matter how hard he tried to deny it. He was drawn to this mysterious, unconventional woman.

A lot of older film fans may remember Christopher Lambert in the sci-fi action hit HIGHLANDER trilogy. He is one of a few immortals on earth who can die only by decapitation battling other immortals. He was supposed to be Scottish in that film. Lambert makes use of his flawless French here. He was born in the U.S. to his father who was a U.N. diplomat assigned to Switzerland. Educated in Geneva, he was bitten by the acting bug and went at the Paris Conservatoire where he stayed for 2 years.

India is more than a backdrop. The land, the people and experiences shape the French characters. It was also very interesting to see quite a number of Indians fluent in French in the former British colony.

Director Calude Lelouch was very truthful in portraying the exotic location. The decrepit train system, even the polluted Ganges were shown side by side with the millions of religious devotees. But rather than disgust the French, it draws them in even more. There is this sense of spirituality, freedom from the concerns of this material world that both Anna and Antoine discover.

UN+UNE is a journey of discovering what love is. Why do we choose to believe the things we believe in? When we do find love what do we do with it?
